My Dad Is 100 Years Old
dir. Guy Maddin / Canada 2005 / 16’
subtitles: Polish and English
retrospective: Guy Maddin

Cast

Isabella Rossellini, Isaac Paz Sr.

Film description

My Dad is 100 Years Old is a recollection of Roberto Rossellini, shown here as a huge and soft belly speaking about morality as a foundation of cinema. This image is both funny and touching, even more so, due to the fierce on-screen discussion of master filmmakers: Rossellini, Selznick, Fellini, Hitchcock and Chaplin (all played by Isabella Rossellini). Although Maddin himself does not participate in the argument, but he is the winner in a way, speaking once again in a voice of post-modern nostalgia and persuading us that it is actually unimportant which genius creates 'real' cinema. In this film Maddin invokes ghosts, using memory as a medium, memory born out of love - Maddin's love for cinema and Isabella Rossellini's love for her father. (ar)
