LET THE CORPSES TAN
[LAISSEZ BRONZER LES CADAVRES]
The latest hyper-stylized genre homage — part grindhouse and part arthouse — from Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (THE STRANGE COLOR OF YOUR BODY'S TEARS) takes as its source material a '70s pulp crime novel by cult French author Jean-Patrick Manchette. The story's thieves, lovers and double-crossers, and the blazing sun of its Mediterranean setting, are but the raw material for the filmmakers' action-painting compositions, expressionistic lighting, virtuoso quick-cut editing and needle drops from peak-era Ennio Morricone and other '70s-era French and Italian soundtrack stars. Official Selection, 2017 Locarno, Toronto film festivals. DIR/SCR Hélène Cattet, Bruno Forzani; SCR from the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid; PROD Eve Commenge. France/Belgium, 2017, color, 85 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
