Screened August 31–September 20, 2018

A criminal gang fresh from an armored car heist holes up in an abandoned Mediterranean clifftop village, where they encounter enigmatic artist Elina Löwensohn and alcoholic writer Marc Barbé. Soon all are drawn into a death dance of double and triple crosses, as the standoff dissolves into hallucinatory, semi-mystical delirium. Cattet and Forzani (Amer and The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears) transform a 1971 pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette into a fusion of the ’70s Euro crime thriller and Spaghetti Western in an immaculate stylistic pastiche and the sincerest form of genre fetishism. 

In English and French with English subtitles.

Official selection: Locarno Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival

A Kino Lorber release.

With Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani in person at select opening weekend shows!

A stunning — even awe-inspiring — tale of double-crossing and unrepentant human casualty.”
