The Temptation of St. Tony
A seemingly normal man is drawn into a life where nothing makes sense in this offbeat comedy from Estonian filmmaker Veiko Õunpuu. Tony (Taavi Eelmaa) is an ordinary white-collar office drone whose world is becoming increasingly bizarre. His wife (Ravshana Kurkova) is increasingly angry and disinterested in him, his teenage daughter doesn't pay attention to him, his father's funeral turned into a spectacle when a massive auto wreck interrupted the procession, and his employers have become ruthless to the point of incoherence. When Tony helps an attractive young woman (Ravshana Kurkova) who is being harassed by police, she becomes a frequent presence in his life until she's abducted, leading Tony into a netherworld of surreal violence and criminal behavior that could pass for performance art. Püha Tõnu Kiusamine (aka The Temptation of St. Tony) received its North American premiere as an official selection at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
