Drama, Romance
The line between romance and sex is blurred in this enthralling 1997 feature by Guy Maddin, whose overwhelming stylization unexpectedly produces an emotional and psychological authenticity. Peter pines for Juliana, but she's deeply attached to the one-legged Dr. Solti, who controls her behavior as if he'd created her through some combination of science and magic. Peter's sister hesitates to sell the family ostrich farm before she's sure the doctor can return her love, and a woman named Zephyr takes advantage of her husband's mysterious disappearance to pursue Peter, a relationship that culminates in one of the most novel love scenes I've ever seen.
