'Naugthy Curves' (Vallatud kurvid) is probably the most Hollywood like Estonian movie of all times. And considering the era the film was made, it is definitely the most escapist one. The film used every pat of the formula that was used in Hollywood rom-coms in the fifties - similar story, set-up, jokes and puns, character traits and overall mood of the film. Lighthearted classic tale about mix up of two identical twins. But by the 1959 the Hollywood (and rest of the world) had gone tired of these sort of films, so one can say 'Naughty Curves' is too 1952 for 1959. It is well made film and one have to take the circumstances and opportunities how this film was made into consideration - Stalin was still fresh memory, and Western World was behind heavy curtains.
For Estonian film goers - especially the older generation - the film is still popular mostly because of nostalgic reasons, although it is wonderful comedy, but not as great as some people say.
