A modern Estonian avant garde fable

THE TEMPTATION OF ST. TONY is the story of company man Tony, whose seemingly perfect life one day collapses. He loses his job, his family and finally all contact with reality, as he sinks ever further down into the underworld. Veiko Õunpuu's avant garde fable of spiritual longing is Estonian cinema at its absolute finest.
