Título original: Amer Dirigida por: Hélène Cattet, Bruno Forzani Ficha (artística): Cassandra Foret; Charlotte Eugene Guibbaud; Marie Bois Guión: Hélène Cattet; Bruno Forzani Género: Terror Sinopsis: Las primeras imágenes, sonidos y voces de Amer parecen provenir de una película italiana de terror de los setenta. Sin embargo, Amer toma otros rumbos, no hay un misterio que desvelar, o, más bien, los misterios son tantos que se vuelven abstractos, pura forma cinematográfica desenvuelta en imágenes, sonidos y música. Y entre esta amalgama visual, el enigma de una mujer en tres momentos de su vida, reales o imaginados, vividos o soñados. O todo a la vez....

Distrib Films acquires ‘Insensibles’ New Spanish chiller rolls in Spain By JOHN HOPEWELL Exclusive: MADRID — Paris-based Distrib Films has taken French theatrical rights to  »Insensibles, » the debut of Spaniard Juan Carlos Medina.Distrib Films plans to release  »Insensibles » fall 2012. Wild Bunch will put out  »Insensibles » on DVD via Wild Side Films. The Distrib Films deal marks one of the last financing pieces on a buzzed-about chiller that went into production this week, shooting in Huesca, Girona and Tarragona. Produced by Spain’s Roxbury and A Contracorriente, which distributes in Spain, France’s Les Films d’Antoine and Tobina Film, and Portugal’s Fado Filmes,  »Insensibles » also exploits a growing French-Catalonian production axis. It shoots in Catalan — not only an official Spanish language but also a regional French language. As a France-Catalonia co-prod, mixing French and Catalan crew and cast, this opens a lot of doors in France, improving Gallic TV acquisitions prices, said Roxbury’s Miguel Angel Faura. Though lead-produced out of Spain,  »Insensibles » draws deep on French resources , one key way forward for a cash-strapped Spanish industry. Elle Driver has international sales rights; Canal Plus French pay TV rights. Pic is bank-rolled by French bank Natixis Coficine, with financing under-written by French culture industry financier Ifcic via an EU Media Program Production Guarantee Fund.  »Insensibles » taps Cofimage 23 French Sofica tax coin. Paris-based Backup Films brokered the co-production. Medina’s debut benefits from Spanish psychological thrillers’ cache in France. Films such as  »The Others » or  »The Orphanage » — which mix drama, story-telling, historical or social elements with shocks — are not as aggressive as...

AMER au Festival de Leeds, England.

Amer (literally meaning ‘bitter’) focuses on three key sensual moments in Ana’s life set against the oppressive backdrop of the imposing family home. A sense of unease slowly builds to an erotic and terrifying finale where the line between reality and Ana’s fantasies becomes blurred. Directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani have created a wonderful homage to 70s Italian giallo films. The attention to detail lavished on every element of the film, from the poster artwork through to the use of sound and music, results in one of the most original, visionary and emotional genre films of the decade.

AMER en Irlande

AMER This Franco-Belgian import has been causing quite a stir on the international festival circuit, and rightfully so: it’s a supremely confident nu-giallo that plays like a love letter to the master himself, Dario Argento – and is arguably a finer Argento flick than the ones Dario himself has been producing of late. Don’t mistake Amer for mere pastiche, however: working on a minimal budget, filmmakers Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet have crafted a sensual, stylistic tour-de-force, a tale of obsession and, of course, black-gloved murder played over three different periods in the life of a haunted young woman, played at various ages by Cassandra Fosset, Charlotte Eugene-Guibbaud and Marie Bos. Virtually dialogue-free, Amer is bold, bloody and enigmatic to a fault, offering any number of sublime (and subliminal) pleasures, from the expressionistic cinematography and deeply immersive sound design to the pitch-perfect vintage giallo soundtrack. Horrorthon loves Amer, and hopes that you do, too....

AMER au festival de Beauvais

RENCONTRE Projection en présence des réalisateurs Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani Ana est confrontée à la peur et au désir à trois moments clefs de sa vie. Un voyage charnel entre frissons et fantasmes. AMER n’est pas réservé aux initiés, il s’adresse à tous les curieux en quête de nouvelles surprise dans les salles obscures… Une oeuvre troublante et sensuelle rare : plus qu’un film, une expérience unique en son genre. Une étrange demeure. Une malédiction et une mystérieuse présence. Une petite fille apeurée observant à travers les trous de la serrure. Un couple torturé. Un beau cinémascope…et la musique de Morricone et Cipriani… Tous les ingrédients sont réunis pour attirer dans ses filets l’amateur d’inquiétante étrangeté. La photo est splendide – il n’y a qu’à regarder les photogrammes pour s’en apercevoir, on aimerait se les imprimer et les encadrer – et nous renvoie évidemment des années en arrière vers les couleurssaturées  de Mario Bava et Dario Agento… Outre l’utilisation – à la Tarantino – de BO préexistantes, la bande son, Amer est au bruit du cuir ce que Microcosmos était à celui des insectes, et ferait presque passer le travail sonore de Lynch pour du Méliès. Amer fourmille de citations, puisant plan par plan, son par son : on s’amusera pêle-mêle à reconnaîtreSuspiria, ses soupirs et ses chambres filmées à travers une ampoule, ou encore une autre baie sanglantepropice aux poursuites sans issue, filmée dans des éclairages bleutés crépusculaires…. « Chaque plan a fait l’objet d’un travail minutieux sur la durée, les couleurs, les formes et les sons (…) La radicalité de ces choix (…) est fascinante (…) Amer ne ressemble à...
