THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD
Canada 2003, 99 min. Director/Réalisateur:
“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.”
