"I made my first trip to the West Coast ever and realised, 'I want to make a movie about mountains.' (Co-writer) George Toles wanted to make a pro-incest movie. So we compromised and made a pro-incest movie set in the mountains." - Guy Maddin (Director). This perversely original, oddball comedy owes much to the era of silent films, particularly the German Expressionist classics of the 1920's, with it's deliberately overwrought acting and dialogue and it's 'hyper-realistic' visual stylistics. This bizarre and unforgettable parable of sexual repression set in an Alpine village led to one critic calling it 'Eraserhead meets The Wizard of Oz', and what better recommendation can one make than that?
