Synopsis

A submarine crew, a feared pack of forest bandits, a famous surgeon, and a battalion of child soldiers all get more than they bargained for as they wend their way toward progressive ideas on life and love.

Our take

One of cinema’s great eccentrics, Guy Maddin takes the relics of film history to peaks of delirium in The Forbidden Room, co-directed with Evan Johnson. Bizarre cinematic dreamscapes unfurl before our eyes, as interwoven stories jostle up against each other, playing out like a cinephile’s acid trip.
