¡Qué horror! 2014
Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet take their particular brand of neo-giallo--as seen in past ¡Qué horror! candidate Amer--even further in the kaleidoscopic phantasmagoria of L’Étrange Couleur des Larmes de ton Corps.
What begins with the mysterious disappearance of a wife very quickly leads us into a dizzying realm where narrative all but breaks down, and dream logic overwhelms the proceedings; this is like an Argento giallo on a bad acid trip. It’s about eroticism, obsession, and quite unsurprisingly, death.
I imagine, if you enjoyed Amer, then chances are, you’ll enjoy L’Étrange Couleur… as well.
But if your test drive of Amer wasn’t quite to your liking (and I did say it was the sort of film that wasn’t for everyone), then I’d avoid getting behind the wheel of this one too…
