The Temptation of St. Tony (Püha Tõnu kiusamine)

de Veiko Õunpuu • Première suisse
Estonie/Finlande/Suède, 2009, 114', vo estonian , st fr/russe


Tony lives a prosperous and rather quiet life. He has reached middle age, and suddenly goes through a crisis that makes him think about moral issues. Is it possible to be a good person? And just what does that mean? As he sets out to find an answer, he meets a number of people with whom he will have various strange and funny encounters. Slowly and almost inevitably, Tony loses his job, his family, and finally his mind. This is a fascinating meditation on good and evil by the already quite well-known Estonian genius, Veiko Öunpuu.
