Summer (1976)

Original title: Suvi

Based on the stories "Summer" and "Toots' Wedding" by Oskar Luts

Digitally remastered in 2009-2011 under the programme of Estonian Film 100

Feature film | Comedy Duration 80:34

Joosep Toots is always playing a practical joke on someone and Jorh Adniel Kiir keeps failing in everything he does. Both of them try to win Teele's heart; however, the moody young woman seems to be extremely determined. The beloved actors and actresses from "Kevade", the first part of the film trilogy, appear again in the roles while having grown up in the meantime. "Summer" depicts the life of the early 20th century in a humorous way while the lyrical undertone is provided by beautiful Estonian landscapes and the soundtrack familiar from "Spring".
