Anti-Advent Calendar #22

Christmas. Day 22. Not long left…

Possibly the most distinctive looking film on our calendar, Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears is consequently not for everybody. That said, if you’ve stuck with this list (bravo to you dear insane reader) it shouldn’t prove too taxing considering some of our previous recommendations.

The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears is a title that both reveals nothing and yet everything one could need to know about the film. A frankly insane Italian mystery, we follow a confused husband’s attempts to find his wife, who may be missing within the apartment block. Giallo through the eyes of David Lynch, the plot makes little-to-no sense and on that level is bound to disappoint. However, The Strange Colour… is never not hypnotic; a painfully violent, beautifully shot fetishistic nightmare with a fantastic, driving soundtrack. Watch it as an Italian cinema fan, watch it as a horror fan, watch it before bed and ensure the most obscenely deranged dreams of your life…
