Did You Know?


In the scene where the pigs are in the rye, three topless men played the pigs. Maiken Schmidt, who played Krõõt, had no idea that pigs were replaced by men so it came a total surprise to her when "pigs" actually started coming when she called them. See more »

Tour de force
8 March 2019 | by jaakennusteSee all my reviews

I almost cannot believe that Estonians have completed such a masterpiece. Tanel Toom should receive an award for creating a movie which unites all Estonians, regardless of their age, beliefs, or social status.

The movie is a life in itself, over which characters change, your perception of them changes, and by the end it is hard to believe that all this changed so naturally and believably. I doubt anyone stepped out of the cinema without thinking through their own beliefs and attitude in the face of adversity or disappointment.
