sex, lies and... murders
24 September 2009 | by andrabem-1See all my reviews

Someone is killing the homosexuals in the gay milieu. A newspaper sends a journalist to investigate what's happening. The journalist, Marco (Tomas Arana) must go to the place where they meet and also of course to pretend to be one of them. It doesn't take long for the killer to become aware of his presence. Insecurity, phone calls in the middle of the night... and some people in the area feel suspicious about the newcomer. At the same time his investigation is shaking him internally – meeting new people, watching new pleasures .... new charms grow on him. Marco is not sure anymore what he wants and/or who he is. Marco continues his investigation, but the killer is on the prowl. The number of victims grows and the police begin to suspect him.....

"Bugie Rosse" is a giallo where the colors blur and the borders seem to fade away. A world of nightclubs, parks with fields and woods (ideal for strolling around and meeting people), lies, hypocrisy and .... murders. And (that's really amazing!), the film doesn't pass judgement! "Bugie Rosse" has that sophisticated visual style usual in many gialli. And the director Pierfrancesco Campanella knows how to extract good performances from the actors. Beautiful women, among them Gioia Scola (she's Adria in the film and when she feels she's losing Marco, she'll fight for him), Natasha Hovey etc., and handsome men (!). Something for everyone.

If you like experiences, see "Bugie Rosse" – the film is original and it may surprise you. For some other similar (that is, non-conventional) 80s/90s gialli , try: "The Washing Machine" by Ruggero Deodato, "L'arabella, l'angelo nero" by Stelvio Massi, "A taste for fear" by Piccio Raffanini, "Too beautiful to die" by Dario Piana, and "Dark Bar" by Stelio Fiorenza (more a film noir than a giallo, but with many giallo elements).
