Letters to Angel

Synopsis: Film about a man who was sent to fight in Afghanistan years ago, where he converted to Islam. He now returns home only to find himself facing another kind of war.The front line in the decrepit Estonian town runs between Eastern and Western culture, men and women, common sense and madness. Somewhere amidst these battles is his daughter, who Kirotaja has decided to find after all the years of absence. His only leads are the sound of his daughter crying, heard once on the telephone, and a dog-eared notebook full of letters addressed to her. But the town has other plans for him and the women running it seem to take him for their savior from the nagging feeling of emptiness that has enveloped them.

the start of everything

in our discussions.

Your voice, as I heard it on the

telephone then was my own voice.

I recognised it right away.

For a moment I was back

with my own dead Mum and

I heard my own crying...

And I thought that you

and I have the same

cry and that's the

basis of everything.

"The pain of the world",

if you can describe crying that way.

I guess you no longer think

any woman will ever kiss you

Or is it self-defense?

In that case you're behind the times;

nowadays there are

more efficient defense

mechanisms, than chewing

on an ink pen...

Is lipstick any better?

- Lipstick isn't poisonous.

And a good color doesn't

stop you from kissing.

Besides, I don't use

lipstick every day.

Any other questions?

- Yes. -Well, ask.

Is there an oculist

practicing in this town?

- Why does that interest you?

You asked if I had any questions.

Do you know if we still

have an eyeglass shop?

If we do, then it's over where

the pharmacy used to be

It's on the main street,

next to the lingerie shop.

Milan. Have you been to Milan?

- No.

Too bad. -What do you mean?

- That you haven't been to Milan

When did you last have

your eyes checked?

- Twenty years ago.

They were okay then?

- Yes. 21-

You've never had glasses?

- I have.

How strong?

- I don't know. American ones.

I found them in the mountains,

with a NASA label.

Belonged to a dead sniper.

You can see well with them?

- That's just it - I can't.

You don't have a light

phobia, do you?

The sun doesn't make you dizzy?

- Sometimes...

Look with both eyes.

Which is brighter- red or green?

Red - no, green...

- No. - Red...

How many hours have you slept?

- Last night I was on a train.

Get a good night's sleep

and come back tomorrow.


- Santa from the hostel.
