Product description

Product Description

Nominated for a Golden Globe in 2016 for Best Foreign Language Film, Märt Avandi stars as Endel Nelis in this drama about the Estonian fencer's life.

Klaus Härö's THE FENCER is a touching drama about Endel Nelis, a young man who arrives in Haapsalu, Estonia, in the early 1950s. Having left Leningrad to escape the secret police, he finds work as a teacher and founds a sports club for his students. Endel becomes a father figure to his students and starts teaching them his great passion fencing, which causes a conflict with the school's principal. Envious, the principal starts investigating Endel's background...

Endel learns to love the children and looks after them; most are orphans as a result of the Russian occupation. Fencing becomes a form of self-expression for the children and Endel becomes a role model. The children want to participate in a national fencing tournament in Leningrad, and Endel must make a choice; risk everything to take the children to Leningrad or put his safety first and disappoint them.
