For the Chennai Film Festival today I went to Inox to see I, Anna – a German thriller Movie. Instead due to technical issues with DCP (Digital Cinema Package) they showed this movie – Mushrooming, an Estonian film, directed by Toomas Hussar and starring Raivo E. Tamm & Elina Reinold. Lucky for me, the film turned out to be quite enjoyable & a comedy.
The story is about a dull Estonian Member of Parliament going out to the woods for a relaxing activity of collecting mushrooms with his wife. Instead, he gets in the news first due to an expense cooking scam, then for getting lost in the woods. The movie starts slowly, then picks pace near the end. The actor who does the Musician Zak character has performed realistically – portraying nicely the carefree exterior coupled with an inner fear.
