What Is an Auteur?


A love triangle develops between three people who run a high-tech chicken farm. It involves Anna (who owns the farm), her husband Marco (who seemingly kills sex workers in his spare time) and Gabriella (the beautiful secretary).

Părerea noastră

Giulio Questi’s second film is a brilliantly unidentifiable genre hybrid, combining giallo with a love triangle and sharp critique of capitalism. Giddily stylized, with an ace cast including Jean-Louis Trintignant and Gina Lollobrigida, it marked an apotheosis of 1960s modernist Italian cinema.

Recenzii ale criticilor

As with many gialli, character sympathy is not considered a desirable goal, and the film floats along with its petulant leads displaying Antonioniesque ennui and anomie. Some kind of Diabolique-type plot twists are doubtless being prepared, but like many twist ending films, the movie has little to busy itself with while the red herrings are stacking up. Questi’s main tool to keep us engaged is the downright bizarre.
