Film Description

Three key moments, all of them sensual, define Ana's life in Amer. Her carnal search sways between reality and coloured fantasies that become more and more oppressive. A black laced hand prevents her from screaming. The wind lifts her dress and caresses her thighs. A razor blade brushes her skin, where will this chaotic and carnivorous journey leave her?

A valentine to the 1970s thriller genre popularised by Dario Argento, Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci, Amer recreates the motifs, clichés and visual codes from the vintage Italian back catalogue of films such as A Lizard in a Woman's Skin, Suspiria and Black Sabbath. Amer is a virtually dialogue free tale of frightening obsession, sexual sensation and stunning black-gloved murder as the three faces of fear throughout an enigmatic woman's life unfold in dazzling style. Scored to recycled Italian soundtrack selections, the hypnotic allure of classic giallo films lives again in this boldly imaginative film.
