    Original title: Inimesed sõdurisinelis

    1968 | Feature film, Full length feature | Director: Jüri Müür

    The war drama directed by Jüri Müür is based on the novel "The Two Selves of Enn Kalm" by Paul Kuusberg. It is the first, and so far the only Estonian feature film depicting the Estonian Rifle Corps in the World War II, including the forming process of the corps in the Urals, its battles held at Velikiye Luki, on Emajõgi River and the night battle of Tehumardi on Saaremaa island. Considering the year of the film, it is not free from propaganda; however, for the first time bold and epic battle scenes together with the war chronicles are presented in this film. The soundtrack "Song About the Faraway Home" (music by Eino Tamberg, lyrics by Ralf Parve) is still a popular soldier song today.

    Estonian Film Database (EFDB)

    The database is maintained by NGO Estonian Film Database. It was opened on 12.12.2012 and is meant for providing information about the whole Estonian film heritage from 1912. We plan fully complete it by 2025 but already now full and partial entries for about 20 000 films, 27 000 filmmakers, and more than 200 production companies could be retrieved in Estonian and partly in English. Translation of film descriptions and keywords into English is ongoing but due to the scarcity of resources quite a slow process. Read more detailed overview.
