Like watching someone else’s nightmares, things don’t always make sense in Guy Maddin’s THE FORBIDDEN ROOM. The film flows from one story to another. Observe a submarine crew, a feared pack of forest bandits, a famous surgeon, and a battalion of child soldiers, who all get more than they bargained for as the film unfolds.
Themes of life, love and dreams are explored and characteristic of Guy Maddin’s filmmaking style, there are visual connections to silent cinema, soviet montage and film history. Settle in and enjoy the visual and surreal feast as vibrant colours wash over you.
