I have never seen anything that so captured the world of folk magic and beliefs and its deep weirdness like this movie. Magical realism, Svankmajer-like puppetry, a witch with very practical advice, the devil at the crossroads, the dead returning (and transforming into giant chickens in the sauna)…it is hard to convey how wonderful this is. Based on a novel drawing on Estonian folklore by the author of one of my favorite books, The Man Who Spoke Snakish.
