  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

  2. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    A well balanced mystery / thriller film in Italian countryside....slow and pointlessly complex (with its Freudian tendency) at the beginning but then goes into a maniacal psych-killer range. Incestuous love, moral depravity, same sex attraction, slight dose of sensuality (from a young Orchidea De Santis) and betrayal. Not a masterpiece but definitely a refined 70s Italian one, also a mention to the soundtrack.

  3. film_lies101's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    Beautifully shot with some inventive camera work at times. The non conventional narrative works really well, not sure why this sometimes filed under Giallo though

  4. kartina obskura's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    it´s not a detailed study of disturbed relations but it was not intended to be. it´s worth enough for anyone who's into weird films and nice gardens

  5. ZYNAB's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    very beautiful...the constant sounds of the birds and rustling leaves was especially haunting...but i couldn't really bring myself to truly care about any of what was going on? i feel bad not liking this as much as i feel i should because it has so many things i love (decrepit castle-like home, incestuous aristocrats, secrets, birds n so much more). there are many perfect moments but the overall effect is a bit empty

  6. dana danger's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    so good, i can't believe i hadn't seen it before! erika blanc is radiant and spooky and wonderful. it's basically a giallo with (most of) the lurid parts taken out, and stretched out to be slow as molasses and highly surreal/dreamlike. strongly recommended!

  7. rllr's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    Intense drama with giallo undertones by the writer of All The Colors Of The Dark and The Case Of The Scorpion's Tail. Worth a watch.

  8. rulesofachia's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    Beautiful romantic drama featuring the amazing Erika Blanc. It's not a giallo but it does have a mystery that becomes more engrossing as the film goes on. The actors do a fine job and the classical music provides a refreshing change.

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    Poetic mystery thriller with a light giallic savour. Note the magnificent musical score by Giancarlo Chiaramello who's not afraid to use cellos in a B movie. Let's also admire the screenplay which mixes flashbacks and voice-over in a very subtle way. A movie to discover. Highly recommended.

  10. Joshua's rating of the film Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods

    One of the most emotionally beautiful gialli that I've ever seen. Scavolinis can do no wrong evidently.
