Winnipeg, au Canada en 1933, au cœur de la Grande Dépression. Lady Port-Huntly, baronesse locale de la bière, bien décidée à profiter de la fin proche de la Prohibition, lance le concours de la musique la plus triste du monde, car c’est bien connu plus les gens sont tristes plus ils boivent.

Notre opinion

Winnipeg’s iconoclastic weirdo conjured his most spectacular film to date with this wild melodrama composed of beer, music, and glass legs. The Saddest Music in the World does the near impossible and entirely lives up to its perfect title by way of a welcome cocktail of the surreal and the sincere.

Maddin and his cinematographer, Luc Montpellier, have put poetry in the surface of their picture — there are no other modern movies, not even black-and-white ones, that look quite like it.

Guy Maddin has reached a new expressive plateau with The Saddest Music in the World. It reprises the key elements of his previous work — the look and feel of scratchy late silents and early talkies (mainly black and white, with a few lush interludes in two-strip Technicolor) and themes involving Canada, amnesia and other forms of repression, war and wartime loss, oedipal conflict, mutilation, and unabated romantic despair — all touched with deadpan comedy and melodramatic excess.

Lovingly cobbled together from his treasure-trove of obsessions and memories, Maddin’s filmmaking — much as it has for Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino — exemplifies movie love at its most ecstatic.
