loose comedy about everyday life of Soveiet Estonian actors in early 80s.
8 August 2008 | by marguskiisSee all my reviews

Ex-ballet dancer (like Sulev Nõmmik) Ago Hendrik Kerge used to be good comedy director, in drama he usually failed. In "Püha Susanna ehk meistrite kool" ("St. Susan or School of Masters") he uses his confident cast (his wife Elle Kull, duo Juri Kriukov & Urmas Kibuspuu, Salme Reek, Aarne Üksküla etc.) and it does good job. This TV-movie is, unlike "Pisuhänd", very loose and looks like very improvised. But it still is quite entertainy, even looked 25 years later. "Püha Susanna ehk meistrite kool" is actually a real play written by Enn Vetemaa but the movie is not actually filmed after it. The movie is about an average theater company who tries to stage it for TV recording. But most of movie shows the ensemble (with TV cast) visiting a kolhoz (huge agricultural firm in soviet time) in countryside, a noisy party in club and sauna with every kind excesses (human conflicts, sex, booze). The movie is very satirical about both snide theater people and robust but wannabe noble country nation. Life entirely looks quite loose, a bit pointless and decadent. Some characters look copied from real life -- the theatre director Siimeon Susi is very similar to known Estonian theatre director Jaak Allik for example. But tall and handsome AH Kerge looks very stupid as author Enn Vetemaa (who is short fatty and quite ugly man in real life). If you want to see quite realistic look of life of culture people in Soviet Estonia of Brezhnev "stagnation" time, check out this movie. Dialogue is quite pointless, so translation is not obligatory.
