      Julie T There was nothing about this I didn't love the first time I watched it, and the more times I watch it the more I love it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review graham j Undeniably beautiful imagery and cinematography, but ultimately a bit too unfocused and ponderous which made it a bit of a slog to get through. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful gothic fairy tale. Haunting but amusing and silly at the same time, in this way it reminded me of The Seventh Seal. Many have criticised the overall plot as too straightforward, but who cares when there is so much tangential weirdness at play? Brilliant soundtrack to boot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review nefasto r Even if the film is admittedly interesting and well made, it loses focus on the main story too many times resulting more confusing than entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a unique vision. A beautiful black-and-white film. Beautiful Lina and Handsome Hans under the auspices of Kraat. Another great film inspired by folklore stories from Estonia. Great black and white VFX. A beautiful and miserable ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Estonian film based on the best selling novel the last 20 years or so over there. It's taking place at a small farm-like village 80 years ago or so. Things are shabby and the villagers tries their best to survive. To get enough food they hooks up with "kratts", freaky mechanical things made of tools that move around and steal stuff from other people. They must sacrifice quite a bit to get a hold of these things - especially a good one that has a soul. For this you have to give a freaky guy some of your blood. At the same time, Liina, a young girl and the protagoinst here, is in love with Hans that doesnt seem to know. She is turning into a wolf at times. This is a mix of old Estonic tales, horror, dark humor, sci-fi and romance It looks absolutely tremendous with it's long, black and white shots. The cinematography is the best feature here for sure, but steady, deep acting and great music also helps. The story is a bit hard to follow. Scenes can stand on they're own, so getting your focus of the story here and there does not kill this kind of dreamy film. The uniqueness and beauty makes it very watchable, even with a uncomplete and messy story. I certainly fell out of it some times, but the experience were not killed. So, a foreign experimental film that looks amazing but may have some trouble of keeping the audiences sticking to the story if they are not familiar with it. 7 out of 10 pants over heads.

      Peter Keough Boston Globe Sarnet elevates his Rabelaisian folktale into a tragedy illustrated by haunting, metaphorical imagery. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 12, 2018 Full Review Chris Vognar Dallas Morning News November is one of those films you can enjoy staring at from a perspective of visual-arts appreciation, even if the story gets thin (and it definitely does). Rated: B Mar 15, 2018 Full Review Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times Sarnet's earthbound fairy tale occupies a dreamscape somewhere between the teeming canvases of Brueghel and the existential agonies of Bela Tarr's films. And it's funny, with a sly salaciousness all its own. Mar 1, 2018 Full Review Anton Bitel BFI all at once a slice of 19th-century Estonian ethnography/anthropology, a bizarre, funny, surprisingly bawdy folk horror, and a beautifully stylised (if often messy and muddy) monochrome study in expressionism. Oct 21, 2021 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed November is a film that has striking visuals that make it entirely worth seeing all by themselves with performances that fascinate and creatures that puzzle in a good way. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 12, 2020 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia A strange and haunting fairy tale set amongst the squalor and disease of the rural Estonian mire.
