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.

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 bientôt en salles aux USA !

GIALLO! / Thursdays in October Blood. Flesh. Madness. Music. Mystery. A black glove holding a bloody knife. A stylish bella donna stripping nude for her killer. These are the familiar elements of the giallo, Italy’s own peculiar brand of bloody pulp fiction: a Mediterranean blend of detective stories, slasher flicks, and sexy ‘70s high-fashion shows that are beloved for their stylishness and sensuality. These films are overflowing with creatively conceived and executed violent set-pieces, killer soundtracks that fans still obsessively collect, and visual delights of all forms — men, women, clothes, cars, lamps, doorstops, everything is beautiful. So beautiful. To celebrate this most cinematic of horror genres, the Cinefamily presents ten rare screenings, including uncut 35mm prints of Dario Argento and Sergio Martino films flown in from Italy, and a sneak preview of the new French homage to the giallo, Amer! Series co-presented by Cinespia. 10/07 @ 8:00pm / SERIES: GIALLO! Dario Argento Double Feature: Deep Red (Uncut!) shown with Opera Deep Red – 8:00pm Dario Argento fans love arguing over whether this or Suspiria is his best film, but there’s a good case to be made that this isn’t just his finest achievement but also the best giallo ever made, period. David Hemmings (in one of his best roles) plays an English pianist who witnesses the brutal murder of his psychic neighbor and is drawn into a nightmarish web of clues involving grisly children’s drawings, a nasty Christmas double homicide from the past, a ghoulish lullaby, and a rising body count (including one standout scene swiped by John Carpenter for Halloween). Driven by Goblin’s ferocious and legendary rock score, this all-time classic features some of...
