NR. 1hr 55min CAST: Rea Lest, Jorgen Liik, Arvo Kukumagi DIRECTOR: Rainer Sarnet WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

In this tale of love and survival in 19th century Estonia, peasant girl Liina longs for village boy Hans, but Hans is inexplicably infatuated by the visiting German baroness that possesses all that he longs for. For Liina, winning Hans’ requited love proves incredibly complicated in this dark, harsh landscape where spirits, werewolves, plagues, and the devil himself converge, where thievery is rampant, and where souls are highly regarded, but come quite cheap. With alluring black and white cinematography, Rainer Sarnet vividly captures these motley lives as they toil to exist—is existence worth anything if it lacks a soul?

Reviews
A deeply peculiar folklore-informed picture in which unrequited love is more troubling than the plague, the Devil, and a forest full of ghosts, Rainer Sarnet's NOVEMBER upends any expectations moviegoers may have when they hear the words ‘black-and- white film from Estonia.
John DeFore, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Where most old-world yarn spinners would take the building blocks of freaky Freudian bedtime stories (sleepwalking damsels, deals with the devil, witches, werewolves, class warfare) and milk them dry, Sarnet doesn't stop until he's fried them (and your frontal lobe) to a crisp.
David Fear, ROLLING STONE
Shot in stunning black and white, NOVEMBER is a beguiling mash-up of Estonian pagan and European Christian mythologies that ultimately grapples with the existence of the soul.
