Careful is a 1992 comedy drama directed by Guy Maddin. It is set in a fictional remote Alpine village called Tolzbad where the ever-present threat of avalanches causes everyone to talk in whispers and be unhealthily cautious. The movie follows the parallel stories of butler-in-training Johann (Brent Neale) and his fianc''e, Klara (Sarah Neville). Johann lusts after his mother, Zenaida (Gosia Dobrowolska), but is so disgusted by his feelings for her that he starts to lose his mind. Klara is similarly attracted to her father, who unfortunately lusts after Sigleinde (Katya Gardner), Klara's sister. Meanwhile, Johan's older brother, Franz (Vince Rimmer), is tormented by painful memories so has locked himself away in an attic where he talks only to the ghost of his father (Michael O'Sullivan). The ghost gives Franz premonitions of terrible things to come, however Franz is mute and on the edge of insanity, so the warnings go unheard by anyone else. What follows is a series of misunderstandings, fights, self mutilations and surreptitious suicides.moreless
