Not a total flop, but totally unnecessary
26 December 2017 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Not-so-young couples with personal issues, getting together under extreme circumstances, pretending to be someone else, frequent misunderstandings, new deductions based on the events happened - do they ring a bell? About dozen films? Or hundreds? Anyhow, Teesklejad has no novelty, no real thrill, and the acting level of the couples is too different (Võigemast-Pohla excel Rämmeld-Abel to a great extent).

There are some beautiful interior and nature scenes, but, in general, this film has little to give to dedicate more than 1.5 hours of your valuable time. Unless you are fond of pretentiousness and course of events with limited antagonism. And trust me, there are far more dynamic Estonian films, particularly this millennium.
