In 1919, one-legged Canadian soldier Lt. John Boles arrives in the northern Russian town of Archangel where Bolsheviks, White Russians and German Huns converge during World War I. When Boles encounters a local woman Veronkha, he faints and becomes convinced that she is his dead wife Iris.

MUBI's take

Archangel is one of the earliest films from the wizard of Winnipeg, the one and only Guy Maddin. A trip to the Josef von Sternberg era of the early 1930s, where the birth of sound and memories of the First World War yielded singular results—and inspired Maddin’s bewitching alternate history.
