Autumn Ball is a 2007 Estonian drama film directed by Veiko Õunpuu, adapted from Mati Unt's 1979 novel of the same name. The film depicts six desolate people of different yet similar fates in characteristically Soviet pre-fabricated housing units. It premiered at the 64th Venice International Film Festival, where it won the Horizon Award.
'Emboldened by alcohol and steeped in despair, the characters in Sugisball lunge for love but would settle for understanding.'
