"If you are sad and like beer, I'm your lady"

What does beer filled glass lady legs

1930’s black and white film

and Canada

Bring to mind?

If you aren’t thinking Guy Maddin films then you likely have some interesting dreamscapes.


Fyodor:  Are you an American?

Narcissa: No, I'm not an American. I'm a nymphomaniac.


Lady Port-Huntley, the Baroness of Beer, organizes a contest to find the saddest music in the world, while lining her – and her investors – pockets, feeding off the sadness of the Depression area by selling the masses BEER. Musicians from around the world descend on Winnipeg, Canada in this off beat and extremely unique comedy from Director Guy Maddin. The guy who did a lot of other movies you haven’t likely heard of, but works with a lot of actors that you have.

Winners of each musical round slide into in a massive beer pool! Yet to be determined if real steaming suds were used or, more likely, a hot soapy bath.  They battle for a wapping $25,000 grand prize, which would buy a heck of a lot of beer in the Great Depression. You get a great show of music, comedy, loads of one liners and the joy of watching beer be leading actor.

Expand your film viewing, beer loving volume and take a sip at the rim of something extremely rare-

“The Saddest Music in the World”SaddestMusicintheWorld


The bit where lady Port-Huntley dances on her beer filled legs gives me little butterflies of jealousy and fear. Delicious!


Kinda makes ya wana cut your legs off and move to Canada.

Not really.
