In Guy Maddin's latest piece of deranged heterosexual camp, a
housepainter named Guy Maddin comes home after thirty years to fulfill his
dying mother's request that he repaint the lighthouse where she used to run
a sinister orphanage and all the kids had mysterious holes in their heads.
Additional intrigues involve a teenage sleuth who poses as her own brother.
Narrated by Isabella Rossellini and enhanced by Jason Staczek's superb
score, this is characteristically intense and, unlike most of Maddin's
silent-movie models, frenetically edited.
