In a poor Estonian village, a group of peasants use magic and folk remedies to survive the winter, and a young woman tries to get a young man to love her.

The invocation of folklore, fables, and myth in film is certainly nothing new, but what the Estonian director Rainer Sarnet pulls off in November is. Mythical worlds existing within our own always serves to throw our reality into relief by showing us what it isn’t. In November, myth is integral to the fabric of a small Estonian village as it claws its way to survival during an endless winter. The gorgeously lush cinematography frames and buttresses the bizarre magic, which intermingles with the story of a potent love triangle. The myths interact with this unfolding human drama to reach a new and uncomfortable state where everything and nothing are real. It’s a film not so much about fables but about what it feels like to live in a world where they are real . . . and knock on your door.
