The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears Review

Image for The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears

Returning from a business trip to find his wife missing and his front door locked from inside, Dan Kristensen (Tange) disappears into a strange labyrinth within his own building. What does the old woman upstairs know and who is the lady in the red hood?

★★★★

Belgian directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani follow up Amer with another extended use of Italian horror-thriller style to deliver an intense character study… instead of an archetypal giallo heroine, the focus is on Dan Kristensen (Klaus Tange), a man caught in an Argento-like trap in a beautiful yet sinister apartment building in which murders, shaggy-dog stories, disappearances, childhood memories and red herrings wind around him. Using a collage soundtrack, gorgeous décor, costume and cinematography, this is a world full of philosophical and criminal mysteries.

A mysterious and disorientating blend of giallo violence, cinematic experimentation and Lynchian psychohorror. Revel in its bonkers beauty.
