….Luuraja ja luuletaja….
Film, made by Toomas Hussar, inspiring enough and breath-taking from a perspective of hope.U got the idea?:) Spy and poet: what do they have in common?! Right: useless job. Usually, unnoticeable one. But if once they are being noticed, it goes for a story: life changing sometimes, or budget goverment reducing.
Hope about Estonian community could sincerely laugh at themselves and see real ridiculous situations they are seriously into.
As a foreigner in Estonia, I would claim it is a perfect piece of art which could describe conditions people go through on a level of differences here, Russian-Estonian mentality. In a movie it shows up an easy positive emotional clash, so different and common both ways.
Topics about independence (which is beloved one among Estonians), fool of art, freedom of artists, fun of love, breaking stereotypical social structures.
The most hilarious was to observe Mr. Sauter, who is Estonian, well, writer. He was bursting out laughing and I got a feeling everything, nevertheless I knew it anyhow, is a true.
A true Estonian community which is sincerely capable of having fun and analyzing itself. Honest, on a big screen within high-quality of picture and music on background.
Would love to compare this movie with works of Umberto Eco, but still not to such big scale. The film connects loads of allusions and reminiscences. Mostly, American ones, but Russian and Estonian classics as well.
Softly, gently, still a bit chewing the same problem, but in a hilarious way, like frankly trembling whisker s of “an Estonian Hemingway” Mr. Sauter.
