"Bizarrely touching, funny, and literally fabulous. If you're willing to try some serious travel in the cinematic space-time continuum, hop on board one of Maddin's starships." -David Cronenberg

Zeitgeist Video presents a Special DVD Edition of three critically-acclaimed films from beloved cult director Guy Maddin. Director of the arthouse smashes Tales from the Gimli Hospital and Careful, Maddin has been hailed by both filmmakers and critics alike as one of the most innovative and original voices working in contemporary cinema. THE GUY MADDIN COLLECTION includes the acclaimed feature ARCHANGEL; the director's most recent feature film, TWILIGHT OF THE ICE NYMPHS and the highly-lauded short THE HEART OF THE WORLD.

Twilight of the Ice Nymphs is the dream-struck fantasia of Peter Glahn, a political prisoner returning, after several hard years of incarceration, to his homeland of Mandragora where the sun never sets. While still on the boat, he spends a few precious minutes in the enticing and rarefied company of Juliana (Pascale Bussieres), a beauteous young woman with whom he falls desperately and immediately in love. He disembarks to find a veritable ronde of romance brewing in the smoldering passions of sun-addled Mandragorans: his ostrich-farming sister, Amelia (Shelley Duvall) is sick with heartache for the mesmerist Dr. Solti (R.H. Thomson), who with a greedy and voluminous passion seeks the favors of both Zephyr (Alice Krige), a fisherman's widow now married to the forest, and a statue of Venus recently uncovered and mounted imperiously on a hilltop. Zephyr, for her part, gives herself to Peter upon his arrival, but he can think of no other than Juliana and her strange connection to the haughty mesmerist Solti. Amelia, driven to distraction by her unrequited passion for the Doctor as well as by the unwelcome attentions and misguided vengeance of her handyman, Cain Ball (Frank Gorshin), loses her reason and spirals into a homicidal madness, gravely injuring Cain Ball by driving a nail through his head. Peter himself is maddened by his own unrequited love for Juliana and the ways in which it is constantly thwarted by the wily Doctor: and so the story goes...

"Wickedly funny...places Shelley Duvall and Batman's Frank Gorshin in a Gotterdammerung
