Program Notes

Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani pay homage to 1970s Italian crime films in their giallo-influenced, third feature (following their previous features Amer and The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears). After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean.

Home to a reclusive, yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on the classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring music by Ennio Morricone.

 

“Beautiful, experimental and bold. One of the most exciting cinematic experiences I’ve had in quite some time. I couldn’t look away for fear of missing yet another thing I’d never witnessed before.” 

“An exercise in fetishization, of both the human body and the visual medium that captures it. There’s a gleeful, twisted imagination at work here.”
