Incredibly beautiful and crude at the same time, November is a truly original Eastern European fairy-tale.

Poster 240794

In a land far away, in a village covered in stinky mud, life is a constant struggle with the natural and supernatural. Devils, werewolves, plagues and weird creatures called Kratts are roaming the woods. No wonder all this is putting a strain on young lovers Liina and Hans. November is a truly original Eastern European fairy-tale, incredibly beautiful and crude at the same time

November paints its medieval world with no sentiment; as dirty and harsh on people as in Game of Thrones. The appeal comes from the unique mixture of Scandinavian and Slavic mythologies, of religious rigidity and popular beliefs. It results in inventions as spectacular as Kratts – animated household articles and tools that look as if they escaped a movie by the Quay Brothers. Stunningly shot in black-and-white with deep expressionistic contrast underlining the battle between good and evil, this is a one-of-a-kind fantasy film, deeply rooted in its place of origin. The daring score by Polish experimental composer Jacaszek ties all of it brilliantly together.
