Hélène Cattet, Bruno Forzani

France

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.
