Plot Summary

Winnipeg is the star of Guy Maddin’s fantastical rumination on his home city—magic, whimsy and melodrama alternate with archival footage and charming animation.


“You will be plunged into the mind of a man who thinks in the images of old silent films, disreputable documentaries, movies that never were, from eras beyond comprehension. His imagination frees the lurid possibilities of the banal. He rewrites history; when that fails, he creates it.”
-Roger Ebert
