Sügisball / Autumn ball, 2007

5 maggio ore 21.00

It’s Autumn. We see a huge sprawling conurbation of tower blocks built in the Soviet era.

A young writer called Mati is stalking his ex-wife, while also trying to make unsuccessful passes at other women. Augusti is a barber living a dreary bachelor life who forms a bond with little girl, but his approaches are misconstrued as pedophilia. Laura, a single mom, tears up over sappy soap operas, but refuses real-life advances from clueless men, because her ability to trust has been ruined by her violent drunk of an ex-husband. Maurer, the architect, worries about the wellbeing of humanity, but ignores his own wife Ulvi, who in turn looks for solace in the arms of a coatroom attendant named Theo. Women have always liked Theo, but due to his low social status, they don’t take him seriously.

All of these people might inhabit identical tower blocks, but they couldn’t feel more alienated from each other if they tried.

Autumn ball won Venice Horizons Award of the 64th Venice Film Festival, in addition to many nominations and prizes in International Festivals.
