A nice, overtly stylish start if you want to look into the giallo genre. Even if it's a bit tedious, gialli ARE style-over-substance...well, almost by definition. Beautiful ladies are killed by a masked killer with strange methods. All this in very fashionable interiors, lush photography and some of Italy's most beautiful 70s assets (Buchet, Bach and Auger!). 3 stars out of 5. LOVED IT!
I rewatched this because I'd heard so many people claim it was a superior giallo. Once again I was left shaking my head. Like many giallos, it's a painfully slow detective case that tries to distract you from how damn plodding the script is with a bevy of naked flesh. Somehow Claudine Auger looks like she's aged 10 years since 65's "Thunderball." Even the Ennio Morricone score fills ill-appropriate for the film.
