The Saddest Music in the World The Saddest Music in the World

Set in Winnipeg during the Depression, a legless baroness hosts a contest for the saddest music in the world, with a grand prize of $25,000. During the assembly of contestants a father and his two sons; one who thinks he's an American, one who is succumbing to madness over the death of his son and his ex-lovers nymphomaniac tendencies and the father a pathetic drunkard who fucks everything up. Their unique dynamics with the beer-baroness and tragedy bring these characters together to express their deep feelings of pain and give in to treachery. Great film with a prophetic ending is a unique twist on average indy films.
