Two brothers vie for the love of one woman in this frenetic and unforgettable cinematic gift created for the Toronto Film Festival's 25th birthday.

Propelled by Georgy Sviridov’s wildly rhythmic and rousing score from the 1965 Russian film, Time, Forward!, this film remains one of Maddin’s best loved shorts.
