Critics reviews

The film seems dipped in saturated colours and cobbled together from fashion spreads brimming with stunning women and over the top locales, a feast for the spirit and the eyes.

The camera zooms back from a pastoral landscape to reveal a shredded corpse in the foreground, the extended chase through the bowels of a cathedral (clanking doors, scaffold, shrieking pipe organ) builds to the Hitchcokian delectation of bat after bat caught in the heroine’s tresses. “The truth comes to light in very odd colors.” An absolutely astringent vision of a reptilian world, where even reveries function not as escape but as blueprints for murder.
