The Last Ones
With crispiness so characteristic of Õunpuu, ‘The Last Ones’ explores how in reality the human nature and fate are a mess of reactions, however heroic the stories we weave out of it. In the Lapland tundra, miners pass their days in the expectation of tomorrow. Always looking for something, without understanding what exactly the soul is yearning for. On Rupi’s horizon, there glows a secret hope of winning the heart or at least attention of Riita, the wife of his friend and the eye-candy of his boss.
Instead of an epic love story, ‘The Last Ones’ shows us life itself and the true relationships between people, where not everything that has started beautifully lasts forever. People come, teach, give or take something. Then winds change and you have to go on. Sometimes being alone while together, with a burden of guilt the only uniting thing, and even that you must both bear separately.
