Amer (2009)

I often feel a little bored with the tactics of todays cinema. So of course movies with a bit of nostalgia speak to me. If you like italian horror cinema, have a look at the movie Amer by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani. It is a very nice homage to the 70's italian movies of Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci and company. The soundtrack is beautiful (some of it borrowed to Sergio Leone and other italian composers). The movie has that original feel, splendid images, with a lot of use of close-ups, saturated colors and rough montage. It is a fun stylistic exercise in a genre that we don't see anymore.
