Estonia/Netherlands/Poland. Dir. Rainer Sarnet. 2017, 115 mins. Digital projection. With Rea Lest, Jorgen Liik, Arvo Kukumagi, Katariina Unt. In Estonian with English subtitles. Stunningly lensed in lustrous monochrome—“which turns a freezing lake into liquid mercury and a snow-dusted forest into Christmas-cookie perfection” (The New York Times)—this wondrously witchy, folkloric fable unfolds in a surreal vision of 19th century Estonia, a pagan fantasyland in which werewolves, ghosts, and the plague run rampant and thieving is the primary means of survival. Amidst these harsh environs, a lovesick young woman sets out to conquer the heart of the boy she desires—even if it means resorting to sorcery. Based on the cult sensation novel by Andrus Kivirähk, November combines wild imagination, black comedy, and a visceral visual style into something gorgeously, feverishly freaky. Winner, 2018 American Society of Cinematographers’ Spotlight Award for cinematography.
