Director Guy Maddin

Shot on black and white and modeled on the style of a part-talkie of the 1920s, the film is set in Arkhangelsk during the Civil War, three
weeks after the end of WWI. A Canadian soldier with partial loss of memory mistakes a nurse for his dead lover, but she is married to
a Belgian pilot who doesn’t remember being married. The style of this painful love story is oblivious, too. Maddin permeates the film
with his evident appreciation for silent film techniques which he amalgamates with images originating from different countries and time
periods. It almost comes across as if it’s a production from a mixture of Dovzhenko, Pudovkin and Eisenstein..
