Drama
This 2011 Estonian drama lacks focus, but there's an exceptional lead performance from Tõnu Oja as an erratic soldier who deserts the Soviet war in Afghanistan and begins looking for his missing wife and daughter. The film relies far too heavily on hallucinatory imagery, meant to question the protagonist's reliability; before long, what's real and what's imagined become indiscernible. Most of the supporting characters seem extraneous and only muddle the narrative further. The film has a unique sense of place, though, with its ominous concrete walls and rocky, infertile landscapes. Sulev Keedus directed. In Estonian with subtitles.
