    The attendance numbers rival those of feature films in Estonia. The film, produced by Sterotek Film, was a huge draw in its opening week, and remained in the top slot of the box office for its second week-end, with over 8,600 admissions. The documentary was very successful with female viewers, helped in no small part by the charismatic and photogenic central character.
