The new feature film of Academy Award nominated director Tanel Toom "Truth and Justice" has performed strongly in local theatres setting a new record for the opening week of any film shown in Estonia.

The feature film, based on the book by distinguished Estonian author Anton Hansen Tammsaare, was attended by 90 550 cinema goers during the opening week. In a country of 1.3 million that is roughly 7% of the overall population, which has never happened before. The fact is even more remarkable since the running time is 165 minutes, making it a demanding film for cinema programmers. The total Box Office for the first week is slightly more than EURO 500 000.
