I’m a pretty huge fan of Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s Amer, a giallo-inspired slasher that was well received in the festival circuit. The duo is back again with The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears, which played at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. While the buzz was pretty strong, the teaser and available imagery sort of looked like they hadn’t done anything new. Our interview with Cattet and Forzani proved Strange Colour was yet another giollo story, this time from another sex’s perspective – something I found quite interesting. Unfortunately, Mike Pereira comes out of the fest with an extremely negative review, basically calling it out…
“On the surface it sounds like vintage giallo but the plot is soon caught up in needless, incoherence (huge understatement),” he says in his review. “It took me right out of the picture…This is pretentious with a capital P,” he wrote before giving this heavy warning: “If you’ve managed to go through your entire life not viewing a single giallo, this is the last place to start. I’d say avoid like the plague. It would scare off anyone who’d ever had the remote interest of seeing one.” Even though Mike hated the movie, he does give props to Cattet and Forzani for their filmmaking ability: “It successfully captures the audio/visual beauty of those films [giallo] and that’s about it,” he explains. “[They] are obviously super-talented which makes this nonsense all the more frustrating.”
While the movie still seeks U.S. distribution, international PR is underway unleashing the film’s first ever clip that will seduce you to death.
