The Fencer (2015)
8/10
Beautiful film about small people under the Soviet rule.
4 April 2015
A good film about seldom-seen topic. Living was difficult and sometimes dangerous under the Soviet rule in Estonia straight after WW II and Klaus Härö's film tells story about that. It has been built around true story about a teacher which teaches his pupils to fence.

Problem on this film was that I knew too much about the story before seeing it. So it didn't give many surprises.

Not much to complain about directing, acting or anything else. Maybe the story needed something more to be more interesting but the film depends on true story so it could have been wrong to make up something.

Best thing about this film is that there is used both languages Estonian and Russian. So the characters use the right languages. It is of course subtitled.
