L'ÉTRANGE COULEUR DES LARMES DE TON CORPS
(THE STRANGE COLOR OF YOUR BODY'S TEARS)
(L’Étrange Couleur des Larmes de ton Corps OS courtesy of grignoux.be.)
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…
