Elisa e Karl in un grande magazzino all'ora di chiusura stanno per rubare una camicia, ma Karl deve correre a recuperare l'auto. E nel buio, dopo la chiusura, Elisa assiste all'omicidio di Mara. Il commissario Marra ha così qualcosa con cui iniziare le indagini: un testimone oculare. Ma scopre subito che Elisa è cieca. E quando una poliziotta che doveva proteggere la testimone viene uccisa le cose si complicano per il commissario. E ancor di più si complicano quando il suo rapporto con Elisa comincia a diventare un rapporto di odio-amore.Written by

This extremely hard to find thriller from Lamberto Bava comes in typical Giallo tradition, except that the identity of the killer is revealed with the first murder scene. The eyewitness of the title is a blind young woman, so she can describe the killer only by sound and smell. The inspector doesn't really trust her and soon suspects her best friend she knows from a community for the handicapped. Meanwhile, the real killer stalks her, but innocent people have to die until she is finally confronted with the maniac.
The first half of this stylish film is thrilling, delivering a tense atmosphere that keeps one on the edge of the seat. The second half, however, somehow loses track and becomes a bit overlong, including an unnecessary affair between the blind woman and the inspector. The climax, on the other hand, happens too fast to grip the viewer's attention. Barbara Cupisti of "Stagefright" fame gives a solid performance as the title character, and Simon Boswell's sound track is cool as usual. Lamberto Bava used some of the plot elements of "Testimone Oculare" again in his superior and last Giallo until now, "Body Puzzle" aka "Misteria" (1992). Mainly interesting for Giallo fans.
