A Canadian soldier lost in the backwoods of Russia finds himself chasing a memory in the form of a woman whose husband has forgotten he married. Working in a pastiche of early Hollywood modes, Guy Maddin embraces the wondrous, otherworldly peculiarity of an alien land — or Canada — to create a puzzling thing that can only be described as… We’ll leave that one to you.
