Synopsis

Pikk Street, on which some of the city’s architectural landmarks stand, is one of the most important streets of Tallinn’s Old Town. It captured the imagination of filmmaker Lennart Meri, who initially came up with the idea behind this work. The picture playfully combines hidden camera footage with more observational images, employing shots from various unusual angles; these are accompanied by specific sounds and interesting musical themes. The result is a true cinematic adventure.
