An excellent slice of cult television
18 April 2006 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

The Tram is the second entry of Dario Argento's made for Italian television 'Door into Darkness' series, and the first entry to be directed by the man himself. The plot is typical Argento, and follows a murder. Unlike his Giallo films, however, there's just one murder here; and the way that Argento goes about it is a little different to what most of his fans are used to. We pick up the story after the murder has taken place, and the film features no actual bloodshed or gore. The fact that it's made for television accounts for this, but I'm pleased to say that the Italian Hitchcock has managed to make best of it regardless. The plot follows the investigation into the crime and we see how the police discover the murderer by way of re-enactment. It has to be said that the plot moves slowly, but Argento packs the film with intriguing scenes and some, such as the re-enactment itself, really get the imagination going. Typically for seventies Italian cinema, not everything here makes sense; and a lot of the plot is illogical. It's not a big problem, though, as everything in the short film is easy to buy into and I've got to say that if you like Argento; The Tram is bound to delight. Sure, it's not the best thing Argento ever made; but for a fifty minute, made for TV short film; you could do a lot worse than this.
