Saddest Music in the World

Canadian film royalty Guy Maddin directs from an original screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day). Toronto hit.

Lady Helen (Isabella Rossellini), a double-amputee beer baroness, announces a competition in Winnipeg (the world capitol of sorrow during the Great Depression) to find the world's saddest music; nations vie for a crown of frozen tears and $25,000.

Failed Broadway impresario Chester (KIDS IN THE HALL's Mark McKinney) and amnesiac nymphomaniac Narcissa (Maria de Medeiros) hit town representing the USA, followed by Canadian contestant Fyodor (David Fox), a drunken doctor who years earlier severed Lady Helen's gams during emergency surgery. By way of atonement Fyodor constructs a pair of shapely, beer-filled glass legs for Lady Helen.

"To enter the world of Guy Maddin is to understand how a film can be created entirely by its style, and how its style can create a world that never existed before, and lure us, at first bemused and then astonished, into it" - Ebert, Sun-Times
