Finnegans Wake

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 37 min.

Plot Summary
In this inventive attempt to bring to the big screen James Joyce's "unfilmable" final masterpiece, which circles through the dreams and subconscious of a man over the course of one night, characters read passages from the novel itself. With visual and other stylistic devices -- some readings are accompanied by subtitles and occasionally the film switches into animation -- this experimental work offers an accessible entry point into a difficult text.
