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.
