“Beautiful lies are worth more than a hard truth.” The mysterious Toomas Nipernaadi invents, lies, seduces and disappears. A sort of mixture of Casanova and Baron von Münchhausen, he travels across Estonia as a writer. On the way, he brings fresh air and sows a ton of confusion in the tiny villages dotting his path. His lust for life is so contagious that his name has become a synonym for an adventure-hungry wayfarer in Estonian. With its cheery soundtrack and wonderfully restored images, this classic makes one yearn to set out into the unknown.
