Film description

This first film by Maddin was planned to be made within a few days, but the work took three years. The director was inspired by dreams he had after his father's death. The theme is similar to Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass by Bruno Schulz. Maddin has never actually exhausted the issues he touched upon in his first piece and they are present in almost all films he has made. A son feels the powerful presence of his dead father because he constantly feels guilty. The most famous fragment in The Dead Father is the paralysing scene in the garden where the son eats the white, barren and sickening body of his father with a spoon. (ar)
