  • Guy Maddin (THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD, MY WINNIPEG, CAREFUL) directs this moving silent satire about several families and the secrets they possess. Emotional yet thoughtful and infused with surrealist touches, the film offers an original and somewhat horrific view on the experience--the aching delicateness--of growing up. Through his unconventionally autobiographical, transcendently un-gimmicky methods, Maddin once again cuts to the core of emotional truth. The film exists in several presentations, including its original silent format as well as with several voice-over narrations from such talents as Isabella Rosselini and poet John Ashbury.
