The November trailer will stay in your mind for days

If you enjoy a bit of folklore, magic, fantasy, horror and gorgeous black and white photography, then the trailer for November should be enough to wet the palette.

In this tale of love and survival in 19th century Estonia, peasant girl Liina longs for village boy Hans, but Hans is inexplicably infatuated by the visiting German baroness that possesses all that he longs for. For Liina, winning Hans’ requited love proves incredibly complicated in this dark, harsh landscape where spirits, werewolves, plagues, and the devil himself converge, where thievery is rampant, and where souls are highly regarded, but come quite cheap. It begs the question - is existence worth anything if it lacks a soul?

Estonian director Rainer Sarnet has adapted Andrus Kivirähk's novel Rehepapp with a cast featuring Rea Lest, Jörgen Liik, Arvo Kukumägi, Katariina Unt and Taavi Eelmaa.

November has been doing the festival circuit for the past year and is getting a limited release in the US later this month. Hopefully it will pick up a distributor so we get to see it on the big screen in the UK later in 2018.
