Olive Films Finally Brings AMER To US Blu-ray/DVD October 4th
Amer was the toast of the town in 2010, when it played a number of festivals and got good to great reviews from most critics. It has long since been released in the UK and many other markets, but we haven't heard squat about home video releases in the States for a while, so this is very welcome news. In addition to the film, Olive are providing a bunch of very interesting looking extra features. Check below for details:
An eroticized homage to 1970s Italian giallo horror films... Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani's pastiche tour-de-force plays out a delirious, enigmatic, almost wordless death-dance of fear and desire. Its three movements, each in a different style, correspond to the childhood, adolescence, and adulthood of its female protagonist. Drawing its stylized, hyperbolic gestures from the playbooks of Bava, Leone, Argento and De Palma and taking them into a realm of near-abstraction. Amer has genre in the blood. Its bold widescreen composition, super-focused sound and emphatic music (lifted from original giallo soundtracks), and razor-sharp cuts make for an outrageous and intoxicating cinematic head-trip. Featuring music from composers Stelvio Cipriani, Bruno Nicolai and the legendary Ennio Morricone.There is no Amazon link yet available, but when there is we will update this post.
