Set in the Gimli Hospital, the Lonely Einar (Kyle McCulloch) and Gunnar (Michael Gottli) are smallpox patients at the beginning of the twentieth century who share a room. After becoming more acquainted, they divulge personal information to one another, getting more strange with each tale. Apparent rivalry follows in director Guy Maddin's feature Tales from the Gimli Hospital.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Whatever else you might say about this weird, creepy, and funny independent item by Guy Maddin, it's certainly different."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"[One] Maddin's most successful experiments in untuned cinema."
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"There's a thin line between weird and strange, and Maddin's debut falls just the wrong side."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"It's a strange tale that never seems to be anything other than enormously funny and strange."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It is a strange piece of work."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
