Movie Info

In this tale of love and survival in 19th century Estonia, peasant girl Liina longs for village boy Hans, but Hans is inexplicably infatuated by the visiting German baroness that possesses all that he longs for. For Liina, winning Hans' requited love proves incredibly complicated in this dark, harsh landscape where spirits, werewolves, plagues, and the devil himself converge, where thievery is rampant, and where souls are highly regarded, but come quite cheap. With alluring black and white cinematography, Rainer Sarnet vividly captures these motley lives as they toil to exist, but must ask if existence is worth anything if it lacks a soul?

  • Sarnet elevates his Rabelaisian folktale into a tragedy illustrated by haunting, metaphorical imagery.

  • November is one of those films you can enjoy staring at from a perspective of visual-arts appreciation, even if the story gets thin (and it definitely does).

  • Sarnet's earthbound fairy tale occupies a dreamscape somewhere between the teeming canvases of Brueghel and the existential agonies of Bela Tarr's films. And it's funny, with a sly salaciousness all its own.

  • This midnight-movie classic in the making uses ancient Estonian folk tales to create something shockingly unexpected. Both gravely serious and demonically funny, it's meant to knock audiences off balance. Mission accomplished.

    Feb 24, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • November never stops being a visual trip.

    Feb 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie's central story, a tortured-love triangle, is slight. But the context is fascinating and the visual style bewitching.
