Directed by Rainer Sarnet
In this folktale of love and survival in 19th century Estonia, peasant girl Liina longs for village boy Hans, but Hans is inexplicably infatuated by the visiting German baroness that possesses all that he longs for. For Liina, winning Hans’ requited love proves incredibly complicated in this dark, harsh landscape where spirits, werewolves, plagues, and the devil himself converge, where thievery is rampant, and where souls are highly regarded, but come quite cheap. With alluring black and white cinematography, Rainer Sarnet vividly captures these motley lives as they toil to exist—is existence worth anything if it lacks a soul?
Spirits, werewolves, plagues and the devil converge in this spellbinding folktale.
Cast: Rea Lest, Jörgen Liik, Arvo Kukumägi, Katariina Unt, Taavi Eelmaa
Sotoanin you’re dumb. Go eat a burger. Anyways, LMFAO watchin’ this movie.
Wow, what a fantastic film! Eerie and beautiful. Not disappointed.
The first scene with the look of fear on that young calf's face was enough for me to hate it..That young calf looked so scared and the crying when they were pulling her with chains. I didn't even bother to look anymore..
An amazing movie. Reminded me of The Seventh Seal or Fritz Lang's Destiny
