It’s been almost a week since I saw one of the most anticipated Estonian films of the decade – Truth and Justice by Tanel Toom. A film that tells a harrowing story of life, family and honor. But while the film’s themes are imbedded in the past, its message reflects the present and asks questions about the future. It’s also a film that might seem strongly connected to Estonian history, and yet, it manages to convey a universal message. Here are my thoughts on it.
It’s that time of the year again, where I have to shake up my brain and remember all the non-English films I have seen. Turns out, since these past few years I haven’t had the pleasure to mention them, I have a few French movies to recommend.
