Revolution of Pigs - the most popular Estonian film in local cinemas in year 2004.

A few days ago, Estonian Film Foundation established statistics about the most popular films in Estonian cinemas last year. 141 films was rated according to the number of cinema visitors. Quite a few domestic films made it to the list. The top of all films was the Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (surprise-surprise!) that was viewed by 73, 100 people, followed by some other American 'blockbuster' films. The highest position for Estonian film was 7th place, as ’Revolution of Pigs’ , the debut film by Jaak Kilmi and Rene Reinumägi gathered 26,345 viewers. This film also received a Jury Special Prize at the Moscow International Film Festival last year. Another local film ’We Will Not Sleep Tonight’ ( 'Set Point' in some of the records - too bad two different titles can't make it a better film, coz sorry to admit but one of the biggest failures in years in Estonian film-making!) was mentioned in 10th position with 22,532 viewers. Altogether, 13 Estonian films made it to the list of 141 films.

I did see Revolution of the Pigs and wasn't very impressed to be honest. It seems to be lacking a good story-line. So I am not sure how worthy this film was of all the prizes it has gotten. Yet, maybe I should watch it again?!

Ausalt öeldes oli see üllatav, et vaatajaid nii vähe oli. Uskusin, et 40000 piir ikka suudetakse ületada
