Sõprus Cinema at Kai. "Melchior the Apothecary. The Ghost"

In the second film of medieval thriller, the night watchman is frightened by a terrible ghost – the tragically drowned daughter of a rich merchant. In the morning, the guard has fallen to death from a high tower and several more people lose their lives in suspicious accidents. Investigating these events, Melchior’s paths cross with a prostitute, a priest, a foreign artist and a mad heretic. The clues take him to the Pirita Convent, which gloomy vaults hide a dangerous secret buried in oblivion. At the same time, Melchior is troubled by the question of why his beloved Keterlyn suddenly breaks their engagement…

 

The Melchior the Apothecary trilogy is based on the popular novels about Apothecary Melchior, known from the top of book sales charts. In the screenplay for the second film, the screenwriters Indrek Hargla, Elmo Nüganen and Olle Mirme intertwined the characters and events known from the book “Apothecary Melchior and the Ghost of Rataskaevu Street” with completely new and exciting twists and turns created for the film.
