When You Least Expect It
Director: Mart Kivastik
Duration 90 min
Production Co: Kopli kinokompanii
Viivi, still on the young side, but lonely discovers a strange man in her bed one beautiful morning. Panicking, the woman tries to reconstruct the events of the previous day in her head. It appears that it must have been one of the worst days in her life: an aching shoulder, being late for work, a diagnosis by her doctor, and, as a result of it all, an evening in the pub where she realises that you can be as neat and good as you like, but you still need luck…
The man who Viivi finds between the sheets in Andres, nearing 50s, an affable bloke prone to mishaps, and a man who cannot say “no”. One evening, he happens to dance with a strange lady at his local pub…
The film is shown with Hungarian subtitles.
The publication of Mart Kivastik’s ‘Brevarium’ was supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
