Storyline

Cherry Tobacco is about a small-town girl, Laura, who is constantly bored. Her mother gets on her nerves, boys her age are stupid and everything anyone wants to do seems childish. One day Laura's energetic friend Merit invites her on a hike to a bog led by a middle-aged nature-lover called Joosep. The beginning of the trip is anything but promising: the relation- ship between the reserved girl and the outgoing Joosep, who tries to impress the hiking party with his hillbilly style and bizarre rituals, becomes tense. But much to her own surprise, Laura discovers that as the hike continues she is enchanted by the rugged charms of Joosep. The quest is coming to its irrefutable end and Laura has to decide whether a relationship with an older man is a mere step along the winding road towards becoming a woman or whether it is her very first love. Written by Andres Maimik, Katrin Maimik

A restrained classic with incredible performances by entire cast
26 June 2017 | by ksjoshi88See all my reviews

I happen to see this film at European film festival in NFAI, Pune. I always make it a point to watch the trailer before going to a festival movie as it could be risky proposition sometimes, so the thing that caught my eye in the trailer was the beautiful cinematography and a leading lady who looked like and acted like Gwyneth Paltrow.

The film was incredibly fast paced to my surprise and quite humorous in the beginning to set the tempo. But then onwards the screenplay builds the sexual tension between the protagonists in a subtle and charming manner. The best thing about the script is that nothing seems out of place, nothing seems forced upon characters. It goes very easy on our hearts and minds at the same time.

Great credit to director duo of Andres and Katarin for that. But at the same, the best part of the movie is the performance by the lead actress Maris Nõlvak. She doesn't just look like Gwyneth Paltrow but takes us back to "Shakespeare in Love" back in the 1990s with her wonderful performance. For that matter, Gurt Raudsep and other principle actors compliment her perfectly to make it even better experience.

I loved the film for its charm, its camera-work, the background score and the acting. And I could enjoy all of this without bothering about the language which I do not understand at all. Good movies can travel beyond cultural and geographical boundaries, Cherry Tobacco is a good example of that.
