Directed by Guy Maddin
“Dazzlingly funny.... A one-of-a-kind wonder.”
-San Francisco Bay Guardian
Visionary Canadian auteur Guy Maddin’s (Cowards Bend the Knee, Brand Upon the Brain!, My Winnipeg) masterpiece takes place in a 19th-century Alpine village where the wary residents —adult, child and animal!—must speak softly and tread lightly lest they cause an avalanche. But sexual frenzies teem in this world of repression, setting off incestuous love triangles and quadrangles with deadly consequences. Bathed in lurid, luminescent tints that are more stunning than ever in this new hi-def transfer, Careful resembles a vintage melodrama from another planet—something that could only emerge from the singular mind of Maddin. Zeitgeist Films celebrates our 20th Anniversary celebration with this beautiful new “Remastered and Repressed” edition of a cult classic.
DVD Extras Include:
- Brand-new HD transfer, created from archival elements
- New feature audio commentary by Guy Maddin and screenwriter George Toles
- Waiting for Twilight (1997, 60 mins): A vintage documentary by Noam Gonick on the early career of Maddin, narrated by Tom Waits
- Odilon Redon or The Eye Like a Strange Balloon Mounts Toward Infinity (1995): Maddin’s short film about the great French Symbolist painter
