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

A dark Estonian fairy tale. It's visually stunning and the story is enchanting. If you're looking for horror, I wouldn't say it's there, tragedy yes, but horror no.

Learned a lot about Estonian folklore from this. Not what I was expecting, but I fully enjoyed the ride.

I suspected that this would be really beautiful, but I didn't expect it to be so much fun!

I loved this movie completely. Rolled my eyes when I first ran across it but something made me hit the play button and was not disappointed.
