Beautiful Short Film For a Famous Dad

by Guy Maddin

My Dad is 100 Years Old is a lovely short film collaboration between Isabella Rossellini and Guy Maddin where Rossellini plays all of the parts (with the exception of her father’s belly). It’s a history and a love letter for the director who gave us Italian Neo-realism and Isabella. Funny at times and also moving at times, it’s shot in Maddin’s anachronistic black and white style that adds a naive and magical quality to the short film.
