November is an Estonian film about culture, magic, and love.

I truly had no clue what this film was about abut I am so glad I watched it.

The cinematography for one: is stunning. It's black and white, making it even more mesmerizing.

The story seemed to be confusing but surely came together as the film progressed.

There are interesting plot lines. Such as how Estonians are religious and also superstitious. They are able to get a "helper" called a "kratt" through the Devil.

The main plot line involved Hans (Jörgen Liik) and Liina (Rea Lest). Hans, a poor commoner, locked eyes with royalty and is heads over heels; whereas Liina lusts/loves Hans.

The things the characters do for love is sometimes a bit insane, but always with good intention and for love.

Towards the end of the film, an unexpected event happens. But it made the film that much more poetic and beautiful.
