Trailers, oh those cruel tricksters! A man gets home only to find out the door is locked from the inside and his wife is missing. What is going on? That question and some flashbacks of gruesome images just made me want to watch it a.s.a.p. Mystery, bloodshed, European filmmaking, "Giallo" influence...I'm in!! So that's what I was thinking about when the film started, but after we know the wife is gone, and know about the mystery behind the door (pun intended) everything became chaotic. If your wife goes missing, do you look for her inside your own building? Do you knock on every neighbor's door to find her? No, because she is neither a puppy nor a child, so leaving the building should not be a big deal whatsoever. Weird point, but that was only the beginning... Some main features of "Giallo" are that form is more important than content, and that narrative does not need to be linear, and these guys nailed both. The film visuals is stunning in every aspect, colors, frames, perspectives, everything. And so are the sound effects and the soundtrack, the "when" and "how" to use them, great again, a fantastic exercise of style, just like a film school project. To me, though, filmmaking is all about stories, even the gritty ones (actually, I enjoy these more than most of them), but I am not a fan of those fractured time-lines.On thing is symbolism, in the events or the feelings, and another different thing entirely is to leave us on our own to try and make some sense out of it. For example: "Memento" (Christopher Nolan, 2000) GOOD. This very film I am talking about, BAD. And last but not least, one thing about the dream world: it is a fascinating topic, it is true we do not know much about the process, but one thing seems certain: we dream already existing and processed information, so "I dreamed about the "fluzo condenser" and other stuff does not work that way. Call me boring or empiric, but that's what it is. If you want to watch the film, you will enjoy the visuals and maybe understand the whole thing. If you do, give me a call and please tell me about it, maybe it's just I am dumb.
