Hélène Cattet, Bruno Forzani


We had two different backgrounds and giallo was the cinema which permitted us to do movies together because it unifies two kinds of cinema: entertainment and experimental. Laissez bronzer les cadavres is like L’étrange couleur: no psychology, all action. In that sense, it is important that the novel was written in 1970. There are always waves of progress and regression in what people find acceptable, so maybe audiences or producers simply are no longer accustomed to this approach.    


Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani have been directing films together since 2000. Their short films include CATHARSIS, CHAMBRE JAUNE, L'ESTRANGE PORTRAIT DE LE DAME EN JAUNE, LA FIN DE NOTRE AMOUR, SANTOS PALACE, and a segment in the horror anthology THE ABCS OF DEATH, which screened at the Festival. Their features are AMER and THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY'S TEARS.
