LAUGH YOUR EYES WET :)
11 January 2004 | by Kaupo86See all my reviews

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).
