Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Comparable only to the works of greats such as David Lynch, Guy Maddin, Quay Brothers, Hal Hartley, and Tod Solondz, Woodenhead is a Grimm Brothers inspired picture taking the audience to the darker side of fairy tales.

Review

Awfully interesting! --New York Times

A truly unsettling, visually inventive, stylistically thrilling and quite marvelous diamond in the rough. Woodenhead takes the traditional fairy tale and reprocesses it through the minds of filmmakers like Canadian master of the peculiar Guy Maddin and animators of the arcane, the Quay Brothers. Incredibly, all of the dialogue, music and location sound for Woodenhead was completed first and the images shot to fit, a crazed reversal of accepted practice. --James Hewison, Melborne International Film Festival

Did you shoot your film on the Moon? --Mar Del Plata Film Festival, Buenos Aires

Format: DVD
Or maybe not, but I'm not sure it matters either way.

Gert, the village streetcleaner and assistant dumpmeister is our simple but dedicated hero. His heroic quest is to deliver lady Plum, princess of the trailer park with bangs starched upwards (Something About Mary?), to her unseen husband-to-be. Plum is a horse-faced beauty of boyish bust, with a father whose jealousy far exceeds anything to be jealous about. Then the quest begins, from trailer to cornfield, through travails (including grafitti), hermit circus escapees, and something like mud-wrestling Rockettes.

The sound track is unique - it came first, followed by the filming, leaving the English-language movie looking as if the English had been badly dubbed. Then, towards the end, it becomes a musical. All filmed in an archaic black and white (extras in color, though).

So, it's somewhere between 1600 in its fairy tale sense and its 1960s styling, but not to be easily identified, or even understood. It's weird and wonderful. Even having seen it, I'm still not sure what I saw - but I like it.

This movie has some very good atmospheres. It's very stylish and poetic. It is clear that their budget wasn't as great as the one for a Lynch movie, but the result is still very satisfying !

I won,t elaborate on the plot but basically it's the story of a man and a woman who get lost in the woods. I have to admit I had never seen/heard dialogues used it such way. When these two talk together, you can actually see their lips are not moving at all through the whole movie.

Anyways, I recomend this one very much if you're a fan of weird and interesting movies like David Lynch, amongst others.
