The 19th century. In the remote Alpine village of Tolzbad, people talk quietly and restrain their movements lest avalanches come and kill them. This atmosphere lends itself to repressed emotions. Johann is a student lusting after his mother. She is an old flame of the mysterious Count Knotkers. Klara is attracted to her father. He lusts after his other daughter. This leads to duels and suicidal plunges galore. Sexual frenzies teem in this world of repression, setting off incestuous love triangles and quadrangles with deadly consequences

The quintessential Guy Maddin ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Five of director Guy Maddin's most hallucinatory and hilarious fever-dreams. The beloved auteur of Winnipeg, Canada, Maddin has been spinning fantastic tales of obsessive love and Grand Guignol with the language of cinema's distant past for more than two decades. Wretched swan feeders, beauty-parlor noir, incestuous psychodramas, ghostly patriarchs, fascist butler academies, midnight-summer fantasia and hyperbolic Soviet montage are all part and parcel of the delirious cracked-glass, scratched-frame universe of this visionary filmmaker

Geschichte einer Frau ( visu )
2 editions published in 1991 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Martha ist eine moderne, geistreiche Frau, "gefangen" im Körper einer 80jährigen. Die junge Krankenschwester Anna, die sie im ambulanten Pflegedienst betreut, ist ihr über die Jahre zur Verbündeten und Freundin geworden. Sie versteht und unterstützt Marthas eigenen Lebensstil und ihren Drang zur Unabhängigkeit. Die Welt, die sie umgibt, ist Martha viel zu zynisch und zu herzlos, als daß sie die gesellschaftlichen Konventionen ihres Alters für sich akzeptieren könnte. Mit Humor und Witz führt sie ihren eigenen Kampf gegen eine bornierte Gesellschaft, die jeden alten Menschen beim Anzeichen des Verfalls auf das Abstellgleis befördern möchte. Mit Nachdruck vertritt sie ihre eigenen Vorstellungen von Moral und lebt nach ihren eigenen Gesetzen. Durch den Tod ihres Nachbarn Billy wird sie jedoch aus dem Gleis geworfen: Erschöpft und deprimiert über den Verlust des Freundes, vernachlässigt sie sich selbst. Ihre zunehmende Vergeßlichkeit bringt sie in Gefahr und führt zu Unfällen. Ihr Sohn und die zuständigen Behörden beschließen, sie in ein Altenheim einzuweisen. Martha jedoch entscheidet anders über ihr Leben - ohne Würde und das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung kann sie nicht leben, und sie trifft eine letzte Entscheidung ... GESCHICHTE EINER FRAU gilt als der bisher beste und überzeugendste Film des australischen Regisseurs Paul Cox.
