Together with his teenage sister and a horde of orphans, young Guy Maddin lazes away his under-stimulated youth on the mysterious island he will someday inherit. In the lighthouse orphanage where they all live, their every move is watched over by their overbearing and tyrannical mother while their father, a scientist and inventor, works away secretively in the basement. When new adoptive parents discover mysterious head wounds on their children, teen detectives Wendy and Chance Hale—brother and sister sleuths known as “the Lightbulb Kids”—visit the island to launch an investigation. As the investigation progresses, the kids are led into the darkest regions of revelation and repression as the terrible secrets of Guy’s family are revealed.

Oh boy! Another quirky, kaleidoscopic comedy from the colossus of creativity- GUY MADDIN!!

Director: Guy Maddin Writer: George Toles, Guy Maddin
Run time: 100 minutes Release date: 1992-09-30
Floor location: Comedy Format: DVD
Production Countries: Canada
Spoken Languages: Deutsch, English
In the remote Alpine village of Tolzbad at the turn of the century, people talk quietly and restrain their movements lest avalanches come and kill them. This atmosphere lends itself to repressed emotions - shown through the parallel stories of butler student Johann lusting after his mother (an old flame of the mysterious Count Knotkers) and Klara's attraction to her father (who lusts after his other daughter), leading to duels and suicidal plunges galore. All this is shot in the style of an early German sound film, complete with intertitles, deliberately crackly soundtrack and 'hand-tinted' colour effects.

Guy Maddin brought silent films back before they became trendy (I'm looking at you, "The Artist"). Very surreal and dreamlike and funny. A unique film experience.
