On the steep sides of mountain ranges worthy of the Carpathians, live the inhabitants of Tolzbad. Why is the migratory flight of wild geese awaited so apprehensively every year? What is this excessive caution that drives them to caulk their windows? Who are these people, where are we and when?

Guy Maddin's third film that makes fascinating use of color here, “Careful” has been selected at major festivals and acclaimed by international critics. In 1995, Guy Maddin received the "Telluride Medal" for his entire work, a coveted title awarded to such important filmmakers as Gance, Coppola, Tarkovski and Eastwood.

A strange trinket, a tale for adults, baroque and deadpan. Guy Maddin is a melancholy cinephile, a handyman of film and a true poet. (Les Inrockuptibles)
