Estonian Celebrates Centenary with Truth and Justice

Truth and Justice / Tõde ja õigus is one of the five feature films made for the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia. The film is based on the pentalogy of the Estonian writer Anton Hansen Tammsaare, which is considered to be one of the major works of Estonian literature.

The story takes place in Estonia in the second half of the 19th century. A young man Andres, together with his wife Krõõt, arrive at their new farm. The household works hard battling with nature, fate and their spiteful neighbour Pearu. When life brings Andres more suffering than success, he will start searching desperately for truth and justice – in court, at the tavern and in the Bible, sacrificing his family, his friends and eventually himself.

  1. Have not made this salad for a long time: thanks for the memory – it will be on the menu soon 🙂 ! ‘Truth and Justice’ – my father was an army lawyer in Estonia – perhaps because of that I was utterly fascinated by the book at a very early age and managed to make my way thru’ all the darkness – have to try see the film the atmosphere of which seems so true to what Tammsaare wrote . . .
