Trailer For The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears Online
Second slice of surrealism from Amer directors

The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears has been baffling and mesmerising audiences on the inernational festival circuit over the last few months. The second "arthouse giallo" (after 2009's Amer) from the writing/directing partnership of Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, there's now a trailer online, pending the film's full release - in France, at least - next Spring.

What you will correctly glean from this is that the film has a lot of close-ups of eyes. Plot-wise, you may also have gathered that it's something of a surreal experience, but on its most basic level it involves the nightmarish psychological journey of a man (Klaus Tange) searching for his wife, who has disappeared from their Parisian apartment, which was locked from the inside. 

Tange's investigations lead him to discover other disappearances from within the same opulently decayed apartment block, with flashbacks including the tale of the man upstairs who deveoped an obsession with sounds from above and then vanished into his ceiling. The building itself, it seems, is the key to the mystery.

The film's obvious love of and debt to the Italian slasher genre means it's on similar ground to last year's brilliant Berberian Sound Studio, by way of David Lynch, The Brothers Quay and The People Under The Stairs, but it's also uniquely its own beast. It played at the London Film Festival in October, but we don't seem to have a wider release date in the UK so far. According to the clip, it's out in France in March.
