 WINNIPEG : MON AMOUR

Duration : 79 min

Director : Guy Maddin

Producer : Buffalo gal pictures

Actors : Darcy Fehr, Anne Savage, Amy Stewart

Plot Winnipeg my Love is a bitter-sweet tribute to the hometown of Guy Maddin in Canada. City of superlatives, according to the director : the world’s coldest, the smallest park of the world, the city of somnambulists, magnetizers and spiritists, a sleepy city inhabited by spirits. This is how the narrator describes her in the first person, watching her passing behind the window of a train. Plunging his gaze into the faded landscape, he recalls his childhood, the history and topography of his city.
