A clumsy radio-announcer is reading a talk-serial in the radio every day. As he puts his dreams in the tale, the story goes more and more difficult to control. Based on a famous radio-serial in Estonia. The announcers who played double roles - man and woman, in the radio, play them as well in the movie.Written by
I`m Estonian and for me the movie really is excellent. The style, surroundings, characters and the ability to make jokes on usual topics that follow persons in their life. When I first saw the movie, I joint it in the middle. That time I only laughed but second time that I watched it from the beginning to the end I really received the whole idea. I suggest the movie to people that have some knowledges of Estonian historical background(some of the jokes might be misunderstood or you might not understand it at all).
