Anything done by the tandem formed by filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani is already a mandatory MUST SEE. Especially, their The ABCs of Death (2012) segment “O is for Orgasm” and their debut feature film Amer (2009), but not forgetting their most recent work until date The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears (original title L’étrange couleur des larmes de ton corps) (2013). For their next movie, they didn’t choose one of their own stories but decided to adapt a novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette & Jean-Pierre Bastid, although the duo of directors wrote the screenplay.
Let the Corpses Tan (original title Laissez bronzer les cadavres) (2017) is about Rhino and his gang steal a cache of gold. They believe they’ve found the perfect hideout: a remote and abandoned hamlet that has been taken over by a woman who is searching for inspiration. Unfortunately, surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan, and the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield. And after watching the trailer, be can be sure that battle is going to be gorgeous!
Everything we expect from a movie by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani is here. Amazing photo, a delicated use of images and sounds accompanied with an effective soundtrack, the eternal sound of rubbing leather so characteristic of the giallo films and so well established as one of the filmmaker’s trademark…
The movie is starred by Marc Barbé, Bernie Bonvoisin, Dorylia Calmel, Stéphane Ferrara, Bamba Forzani Ndiaye, Marilyn Jess and Elina Löwensohn among others. After being one of the sensations this past August at the Locarno Film Festival, tomorrow Let the Corpses Tan (2017) will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival were almost surely won’t go unnoticed.
All of it is there. This is the kind of trailer that makes you want to watch the movie RIGHT NOW. You don’t believe me? Well, check it out by yourself:
