St Anthony's demonic torment is the inspiration for a modern manager's midlife crisis. His marriage, his friendships, and his work – where he has to sack everyone – provoke a series of marvellously shot, and oddly funny scenes.


Bizarre and beautiful, disturbing and droll...As Townes Van Zandt’s Dollar Bill Blues strums on the soundtrack, Mr. Õunpuu, like an Estonian Michael Moore, questions whether capitalism and goodness can coexist.
Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times
