After watching 'Indrek' I realized one thing - Estonian cinema is not so much director's art rather than writer's and actor's art. There are enough great, good, or simply entertaining films, but not like auteur pieces. 'Indrek' is good and entertaining, the top notch acting, and well written script. But the direction is bit off - pacing is alright and there are some nice shots and camera movements, but there is also many weird and out of place editing that kind off ruins the flow of the film. Altogether, it is a nice film with its own peculiar charm.
Also, it seems that Estonians tend to take too many things with satire and sarcasm, that these heavy drama films consist much more warm and subtle humor than these forced Estonian comedies.
