Synopsis

A sort-of musical set in Winnipeg during the Great Depression, where a beer baroness organizes a contest to find the saddest music in the world. Musicians from around the world descend on the city to try and win first place – a $25,000 prize.

Vi tycker

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.

Kritiker-recensioner

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.
