Bizarre, unintentionally funny, and at times pretty ridiculous. But what makes it a notch above a lot of other giallo's (outside of Bava and prime Argento) is the damn near masterful and bold camera work. It defiantly should be seen at least one time, exclusively for devotes of this particular genre.
Solid giallo expertly directed by Giuliano Carnimeo. For once, I had the impression that competent people took care of this movie: the actors were convincing, the mystery is really a mystery and at least one murder, in the elevator, is a little jewel and, last but not least, the prerequisite in order to earn the giallo stamp, nude scenes of sexy girls, is never artificial. Highly recommended.
A superlative giallo, highly recommended for fans of the genre. Director Giuliano Carnimeo and cinematographer Stelvio Massi outdid themselves here, with a camera that is constantly moving and perched from unconventional angles. Parts of the film are slow-paced but, hell, tell me what giallo isn't. The visuals are stunning as is lead actress Edwige Fenech. And the elevator murder is right out of "Dressed to Kill."
Offbeat, above average giallo thriller. The slick style, some pretty odd humor (the dubbed dialogue is pretty unusual), and a colorful cast of characters, headline by genre stalwart Edwige Fenech make this great entertainment for fans of the genre.
absolutely gorgeous, even among gialli - some really amazing photograpy here, particularly scene with the titular iris. edwidge is her usual wonderful self. the ending is awfully predictable, but that's not really why we watch gialli, anyway.
