THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD
saddestmusic

Canada 2003, 99 min. Director/Réalisateur: Guy Maddin
“It is 1933, the height of the Great Depression. To boost sales, beer baroness Lady Port-Huntly (Isabella Rossellini) announces a global competition to determine the saddest music in the world. Musicians from every corner of the globe flock to wintry Winnipeg — the world capital of sorrow — to vie for the colossal $25,000 prize. Filmed in tantalizing black and white in the style of a Golden Age musical melodrama — with Guy Maddin’s singular, lavish direction — THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD is a visually rapturous, appallingly funny tour de force. Mining the forgotten treasures of cinematic history, Maddin is one of the most distinctive and alluring filmmaking talents at work today.”
(Stacey Donen, Toronto International Film Festival)
