Veiko Õunpuu at IFFR
Fascinating adaptation filled with black humour of the book by the Estonian writer Mati Unt, in which the young talent Veiko Õunpuu follows various inhabitants of a block of flats in their loneliness. It's so depressing it makes you laugh.
The Temptation of St. Tony
Veiko Õunpuu’ second film (after Autumn Ball) is a parable on the new, wolf-like capitalism in Eastern Europe with its compassionless capitalist rules and rulers. Shot in beautiful black and white, Õunpuu’s vision is provocative and dark, but also very diverting with his use of black comedy.
