Storyline

In a house haunted with memories, gangster and father Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) arrives home after a long absence tow­ing the body of a teenaged girl and a bound and gagged young man. His gang waits inside his house, having shot their way past police. There is friction in the ranks. Ulysses, however, is focused on one thing: journey­ing through the house, room by room, and reaching his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini) in her bedroom upstairs. His odyssey eventually becomes an emotional tour, as the strange nooks and crannies of the house reveal more about the mysterious Pick family. Written by Distributor

Trivia

Ulysses quotes the first line of this verse from one of Emily Brontë's Gondal poems:

"By dismal rites they win their bliss By penance, fasts, and fears - I have one rite - a gentle kiss One penance - tender tears." See more »

Quotes

Calypso: Ulysses is getting closer. I can hear him down there. He's bent on forgiveness, which is much more frightening than revenge.
Hyacinth: There will be no forgiveness, Father. That is why I keep you chained at my bed.

A film noir styled erotic ghost story
10 September 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Canada 93m, B&W, Colour Director: Guy Maddin; Cast: Jason Patric, Isabella Rossellini, Udo Kier, Kevin McDonald

Keyhole is a dark surreal film noir styled erotic ghost story loosely based on Homer's Odyssey about Ulysses Pick, a gangster whose mob pals shoot their way into his family home. Upon his arrival, Ulysses is inexplicably accompanied by a stuffed wolverine named "Crispy" and a drowned woman who apparently comes to life. His odyssey is a claustrophobic adventure through his labyrinth of a house which seems to defy the laws of time and space. Nearly incomprehensible, Keyhole offers a glimpse into a dead man's life through nightmarish visuals that are as interesting as they are perplexing (Klaus Ming August 2013).
