the invisible fight

6 and 7 March, 2024

Heavy metal and kung-fu comedy come together with anarchic absurdity in this tale of a soldier whose brush with death leads him to decide to become a martial arts monk.

The colourful exuberance and dodgy fashions of the 1970s are perfectly captured in Rainer Sarnet’s anarchic kung-fu comedy. When Black Sabbath-loving young soldier Rafael (Ursel Tilk) has a brush with death invovling three Chinese martial artists and a boombox, he decides to become a kung-fu Orthodox monk. But the path to humility is not as easy as it looks, especially in the face of rival monk Irinei (Kaarel Pogga), the attractions of local woman Rita (Ester Kuntu) and his mum’s home cooking. Sarnet blends flamboyant kick-ass action with absurdist humour.

Estonian and Russian with English subtitles.
