Storyline

"November" is based on Estonian novel "Rehepapp" by Andrus Kivirähk, a bestseller of the last twenty years. The film is a mixture of magic, black humor and romantic love. The story is set in a pagan Estonian village where werewolves, the plague, and spirits roam. The villagers' main problem is how to survive the cold, dark winter. And, to that aim, nothing is taboo. People steal from each other, from their German manor lords, and from spirits, the devil, and Christ. To guard their souls, they'll give them away to thieving creatures made of wood and metal called kratts, who help their masters by stealing more. They steal even if their barns are already overflowing. Stealing is an obsession that makes the villagers more and more like the soulless creatures they command, the kratts. The main character of the film is a young farm girl named Liina who is hopelessly and forlornly in love with a village boy named Hans. Her longing makes the girl become a werewolf and jump into an ice-cold ...

A strange trip deep in the wilderness.

I could try to explain to you what the hell is going on but in all honesty that would not be a good explanation as I have no clue what's happening here.

Seems very experimental with some loose concepts that make it seem like a science fiction film.

Confusing as it was I did like the imagery. I'm a sucker for a film shot it the cold wilderness. A lot of the picture seemed grim and distributed but I found it hard to get into as I really don't know what's going on and kept falling in and out of reading the subtitles.

I like the picture, but the story I could not keep up with.
