Death Has A Taste And We Have Its Trailer.  An Exclusive Early Look at AMER!
[Due to the plain and simple fact that I absolutely adore this film, this post will remain at the top of the page until midnight Sunday.  New content will continue to appear below.]

Directorial duo Bruno Forzani and Helen Cattet just made my list of directors to watch for 2009 and now you get your chance to find out why.  ScreenAnarchy has just been given an exclusive early look at the full theatrical trailer for neo-giallo picture Amer and it is a dandy.

Desire has always been linked to one's look. And cinema too. Luis Buñuel knew that very well when he filmed the short of a razor over an eye with a detail shot. Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani recover this image in an experimental film with immaculate style. Someone watches a girl through a keyhole. The wind lightly lifts a woman's skirt as a group of men look on. The fantasy of a dress tearing. Composed of fragments -of eyes, lights, shadows, gestures-- and without dialogues, Amer delves into the life of Ana, always halfway between the real and the imaginary. A film of sensations, always shot skin-deep.
Check the trailer below!

...anything inspired from Argento with hints of Jodorowsky and Lynchian undertones will always be worth seeing once, amazing or not, is worth seeing

Now that is a trailer! I've heard all the good things about this one, glad to get a peek at the goods.
It certainly does remind me of Argento, Jodorowsky and Lynch, but for some reason I coudn't help but shake the feeling/idea of Alfred Hitchcock making Cria Cuervos. Maybe it was that house and the girl...

Love the poster. They seem to have gotten the look down to a "T".

pretty awesome, love the poster too. Gotta say the song is maybe a little TOO close to Suspiria though. There is a line between homage and ripping someone off, let's hope the film falls on the appropriate side.

All right, a homage to 70s giallo flicks. Let's see how it does.

The music used in the trailer is from Bruno Nicolai's score
for the 1971 giallo The Case of The Scorpion's Tail, which
kinda predates Suspiria.

Todd, is the film's score made up of music from old gialli
or is it just something they're using for the trailer?

Very cool looking film indeed.

I don't remember the exact breakdown but there's a bunch of old music in this, yeah.

Don't know about the film, but that Charlotte Eugene Guibbaud sure is a beauty, the actress playing the younger woman. This seems to be her first film, I hope we see a lot more of her. What a face.

I can't wait....

I loved their short films - drenched in heavy Lynchian fetishistic giallo-isms (with a vodka twist.)
