From Library Staff

One of Guy Maddin's most accessible movies, it was billed as a comedy and features 'Kids in the Hall' alum Mark McKinney, although don't make the mistake of trying to find something funny in it with your conscious mind.

This is a 2003 Canadian film directed by Guy Maddin.
It looks like as if this movie was really filmed in a style that imitates late 1920s and early 1930s cinema.
You see grainy black-and-white photography and slightly out-of-sync sound and expressionist art design.
A few scenes are filmed in colour so that this movie imitates early two-strip Technicolor.
Unfortunately, however, the story doesn't interest me at all.
It makes me so tired of monotonous and old-fashioned scenes that I quit half way through.
