HULLUMEELSUS MADNESS

Estonia during the Second World War, between the fronts. A well-run psychiatric clinic lies on terrain occupied by German troops. It is here of all places that the Gestapo officer Windisch (Jüri Järvet) is charged with rooting out a British spy. It’s also here of all places though that existence consists of mimicry and madness; the mission becomes highly problematic. A thrill-seeking subsistence life for the sick and fit alike, for the human and the state, shot in modernistic black and white. An insane film, not only about the Nazis, but about paranoia and totalitarianism as well. The film was banned for over twenty years.
