Film description

A surreal series of dark images full of incestuous sexual tension. The film, commissioned by BBC, was inspired by a graphic drawing by one of the most important French symbolists, Odilon Redon (1840-1916). The picture was one of a series of illustrations for the French translation of short stories by Edgar Allan Poe. Maddin was not interested in copying either Redon's drawings or Poe's stories. He made a film referring to the tarry texture of charcoal graphics, greasy like an engine. Another source of inspiration for this film was Abel Gance's The Wheel. (ar)
