Trailerama: Püha Tõnu kiusamine (The Temptation of St. Tony)

Tony is popular with everyone at work. The non-stop praise, though, makes him question what exactly it means to be good … and bad. His quest for knowledge leads him to a strip club and finally, to make a Faustian bargain. Since this is an Estonian film, we can’t guarantee a happy ending. But director Veiko Ounpuu has dressed it up in monochrome surreality. Great to see Denis Lavant’s name in the credits, too. The song is Bobby Breen singing “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.”
