Sügisball is a multicharacter drama/black comedy that concerns characters in an apartment building attempting to overcome isolation in Soviet-era Estonia. Veiko Õunpuu’s feature debut has won much recognition at European film festivals. It’s about as bleak as it gets, but it’s also visually arresting and memorable. Plus, Estonian sounds really cool.
WARNING: TRAILER HAS CONTENT OF A SEXUAL AND VIOLENT NATURE.
In Estonian with English subtitles.
