Cherry Tobacco is about a small-town girl, Laura, who is constantly bored. Her mother gets on her nerves, boys her age are stupid and everything anyone wants to do seems childish.

The beginning of the trip is anything but promising: the relation- ship between the reserved girl and the outgoing Joosep, who tries to impress the hiking party with his hillbilly style and bizarre rituals, becomes tense. But much to her own surprise, Laura discovers that as the hike continues she is enchanted by the rugged charms of Joosep. The quest is coming to its irrefutable end and Laura has to decide whether a relationship with an older man is a mere step along the winding road towards becoming a woman or whether it is her very first love.

Landscape with Many Moons

Maastik mitme kuuga

Year: 2000 Genre: Length: 80 minutes Country: Estonia, Finland
Director: Jaan Toomik Type: Feature Status: Completed Company: Allfilm, Making Movies Oy

Landscape with Many Moons is a drama about a middle-aged man who lives a seemingly ordinary life with his wife and children. The truth is, however, that their relationship has reached a dead end but they prefer the illusory decorations of living together to the free fall into emptiness. The man gallivants around between his previous and current relationships without knowing exactly what to do with them. Living on the edge starts to overburden his nervous system and as a result, actual reality and dream-like reality blend together and it becomes ever harder to distinguish between what is real and what is not. Landscape with Many Moons portrays the explosive state right before going mad when the person cannot get into contact with life anymore. The film, however, is in no way depressing and the absurd situations, deviations from reality and surprising transitions offer comic recognition. Read more »
