November (Rainer Sarnet | Estonia | 2017 | 15)

A magical, blackly-comic story tinged with horror and superstition, ‘November’ tells the story of the unrequited love between Liina who yearns for Hans, and Hans who yearns for Luise. Will the dark powers of Estonia’s old ways give them both what they want? Or are some things best left alone? Werewolves, the Black Death and the Devil himself all appear in this visionary treatment of Estonian folktales that mixes the rhapsodic cinematic poetry of Sergei Parajanov with the deadpan absurdity of Roy Andersson.
