Revolution of Pigs Press Review LESLIE FELPERIN - Variety A bawdy summer camp movie in which the teens go on a rampage, Estonia's rousing "Revolution of Pigs" is an unlikely but surprisingly successful cross between Ivan Reitman's "Meatballs" and Lindsay Anderson's "If...." One of the few competition titles to generate international buzz at the Moscow film fest (where it won the Silver St. George special jury prize), pic by co-helming feature debutants Jaak Kilmi andRene Reinumagi has minor flaws but could interest fests and some internationalmarkets.Ex-Warsaw Pact territories (apart from Russia) will respond to its pungent trough of sex-crazed teens, satirized Soviet kitsch and muted nostalgia. During a hot 1980s Estonian summer, boys and girls assemble at a Socialist summer camp in the sticks where teams will perform skits to compete for a trip to the Russian Black Sea coast. On the camp-bound bus, teens babble about personal five-year plans and the universalshort-term teen goal of getting laid. The handheld camera weaves through the arrivingcrowds to introduce the pic's ensemble, pausing occasionally to imitate the cantered, low angles of Soviet propaganda films.Like Hollywood teen pics, the roster of roles is made up of nerds, popular kids and drops outs. The "Krootuse" team of is led by bespectacled Urmas (Uku Uusberg) an older boy who is worried his poor exam results will land him in the Soviet Army and the Afghani war. Longhaired Erki (Mikk Tammepold) also frets about his results, but has a father with good Communist Party connections. Shy Tanel (Jass Seljamaa) pinesfor popular Diana (Evelin Kuusik), the head vamp in rival team "Hundissaare," with whom he had a tryst the previous summer but who is ignoring him this year. Stumpy but smart-mouthed Futu (Vadim Albrant), meanwhile, believes all problems canbe solved by break-dancing.The camp leaders insist everyone sign a letter to President Reagan pleading for peace, but the kids are more interested in Duran Duran tunes and tent booty calls. Meanwhile, someone posts flyers against the invasion of Afghanistan around the camp and the KGB-like counsellors search for the ringleaders.Rambling in the countryside one afternoon, the Krootuse team finds a sty full of dead pigs and piglets which resonates darkly with them, inspiring them to put on a stylised, symbolic play in pig masks as their entry for the holiday competition. The furious counsellors decide to make Hundissare the automatic winner.Revolution breaks out, with Urmas leading the"October"-style storming of the counselors' hut, where he and the rebels redraft theletter to Reagan, framing a manifesto calling for Estonian independence. Final actteeters on the verge of real violence as the conflict escalates.Although the revolutionary and romantic storylines roughly interlace by the end, the screenplay never quite smoothes out all the plot elements.Moreover, like many other first-time directors, Kilmi and Reinumagi can't resist throwing in not just the kitchen sink, but the cupboards and cabinets as well, creating melodrama with extra incidents like a last-act rape attempt. A tacky animation sequence at the end of a fairly raunchy sex scene also hits a duff note, although parody may have been the intention.For the record, pig went down badly with older Russian critics in Moscow who bridled at "Revolution's” anti-Soviet jibes and contentious politics. However, younger Russkie viewers -- who today have the escalating conflict in Chechnya to worry about -- and international critics responded warmly to pig's anti-authoritarian energy and verve. Although a period piece, "Revolution" nevertheless could also strike a chordwith Western viewers concerned about the ongoing conflict in Iraq, which bears somestriking similarities to the Soviet's Afghani conflict.Tech credits mostly fine. Arko Okk's gritty lensing adds an appropriate rough and ready quality to the finished product. Camera (color, wide-screen), Arko Okk; editor, Lauri Laasik; music, Rein Rannap; production designer, costumes, Inessa Josing; sound (Dolby Digital/DTS), Ivo Felt.

www.revolutionofpigs**** sigade revolutsioon Director: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi REVOLUTION OF PIGS cleverly blends teen sex comedy with political satire. At a Soviet summer camp, teens are more interested in the opposite sex and the latest Duran Duran tunes than in the party-line teachings of their counselors. When the skit competition becomes politicized, a new kind of revolution breaks out. Hair by Oskar Voit.Rooted in the memories and longings of its two directors and fueled by a soundtrack of classic pop, this exuberant look at youthful rebellion is set in 1986. In those days, the Estonian student summer brigades provided an annual rite of passage, during which hundreds of teens suffered through three days of camping and group activities. At night, they secretly released their repressed energy in disco and sexual exploration. However, Estonia in the mid-80s was a totalitarian state and the brigades were also used as a recruiting ground for the Russian army, then in desperate need of young bodies to fight its war in Afghanistan. When the counselors crack down on the campers, a group of dissenters performs a play called," Something's Rotten in our Country," setting the stage for a mass protest which quickly escalates out of control. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Moscow International Film Festival, the passionately inventive Revolution of Pigs cleverly blends teen comedy and political metaphor.Director:René Reinumägi Filminfo: Filmen utspelar sig i Estland och året är 1986. Landet är ockuperat av Sovjetunionen och hundratals ungdomar samlas i läger för att lära sig att bli goda kommunister. Ungdomarna är dock mera intresserade av alkohol och sex och när några i lägret hittar hundratals döda grisar bakom en grisfarm bestämmer de sig för att sätta upp en symbolisk pjäs. Teatern blir upprinnelsen till en revolt mot lägerledarna och den kommunistiska läran. "Revolution of Pigs" utvecklas till en stark politisk satir, samtidigt som den hyllar unga människor ovilja att lyda. Filmen är Estlands Oscarsbidrag i 2004. Skådespelare: Jass Seljamaa, Evelin Kuusik, Vadim Albrant, Uku Uusberg Manus: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi Nyckelord: Drama, Komedi Längd: 98 min Produktionsland: Estland Med i paket: Stockholm XV Northern Lights Originaltitel: Sigade revolutsioon Regissör: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi Utgivningsår: WATCH FILM - WWW.REVOLUTIONOFPIGS.COM

www.RevolutionofPigs**** Director: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi. Pig's Let's talk about pigs. They could be either 'Babe', the Mad Max of green prairies, or the allegorical boars in "Porcile", or, even of the same kind, the pigs that lead "The Revolution of Pigs", the magnificent debut film by Jaak Kilmi and Rene Reinumagi. To try to imagine what an Estonian film would be like is the same as trying to imagine a film from Cyprus or a Somali one: there are few previous comparisons, so it is a useless effort. That is the reason why we give a complicit smile from the first shot of a film about summer camps, that reminds us of the initiation rites of puberty in films such as "Meatballs". It also gives us that sense of warm immediacy that "Fucking Amal" or "Together" provided - two features by the Swede Lukas Moodyson, with which it shares the same cheerful and unconcerned spirit, the same aims in discovery with some of the characters having the same desire to lose their virginity. It is not strange then, at the Moscow International Film Festival, where it received a surprising Jury Special Prize, that both the critics and the audience reacted negatively, maybe because, over Duran Duran's greatest hits, behind the intimacy that tents provide shining as glow-worms in the night, a time for first loves and first drunkenness, "The Revolution of Pigs" throws several tons of rotten tomatoes in the face of the old Soviet communism, which oppressed the Baltic States. Pigs mean chaos, devouring the traces of a regime that applauded with so much enthusiasm the war of Afghanistan as much as the USA is now doing with the war in Iraq. Pigs are sniffing among the garbage. Pigs are the children of the revolution and, in this fortunate Estonian film, revolution must be by the young or not at all.
