Mehed ei nuta (Estonian for Men Don't Cry) is a 1969 Estonian television comedy movie directed by Sulev Nõmmik and written by himself and Enn Vetemaa.


Together with Viimne reliikvia, Siin me oleme! and Noor pensionär, Mehed ei nuta is one of the most culturally influential movies of the Soviet era in Estonia. Particularly memorable is the character of a hypochondriac protagonist, played by Ervin Abel.


A group of people suffering from sleeplessness are, under the guise of a resort, moved to a peninsula and subjected to work therapy. When they realise the deception, they attempt to leave the fake resort, with hilarious consequences.
