"Twilight of the Ice Nymphs"
Directed by Guy Maddin
A political prisoner returns to his homeland of
Mandragora, where the sun never sets and ostrich farming is a major
occupation. There he finds himself part of a dream-like intertwining of
unrequited passions and dangerous obsessions. Guy Maddin's first full-color
feature is funny, highly imaginative myth-making that reaffirms the director
as a true original. "...the world he conjures here of strange atmospheres
and stranger performances is never less than awe-inspiring" (Ray Pride,
New City). Starring Shelley Duvall, Alice Krige and Frank Gorshin.
