Diva in the Bath (1993)

Original title: Diiva vannis


“DIVA IN THE BATH” features two sisters from Estonia. Pille is a young soprano travelling to Brussels for an operatic competition. Kersti is a filmmaker who has decided to shoot the story as her first assignment. Each sister is as nervous as the other and what the film lacks in polish, it makes up for in raw-edged authenticity. As emotions well up and overflow, incidental details enrich the narrative. On the day of the competition, Pille calms herself by mending her bra and cleaning the shoes she bought from a flea market.
