CINECITY: November

Director: Rainer Sarnet
Starring: Jörgen Liik, Dieter Laser, Rea Lest
Duration: 115 min

A wonderfully strange and visually ravishing twisted fairy tale from Estonia.

Set in a pagan village in the 19th Century where werewolves, the plague and spirits roam, kratts - supernatural servants created out of old tools and animal bones - are brought to life by the devil himself. Meanwhile Liina, a young farm girl is hopelessly in love with Hans, who in turn is smitten by the daughter of the local Baron (Dieter Laser of Human Centipede fame).
Based on the Estonian bestseller by Andrus Kivirähk, November is full of folk-tale magic and surreal, macabre humour and features outstanding black and white cinematography – winner at Tribeca Film Festival – and an excellent score by Polish electronic composer Jacaszek.

Part Grimm fairy tale, part East European folklore, and all fever dream. It’s as beautiful as it is weird-as-f**k! – Rolling Stone
