A grizzled thug and his gang head to an island retreat with a haul of 250 kilograms of gold bullion to lay low; however, a bohemian writer, his muse, and a pair of gendarmes further complicate things, as allegiances are put to the test.
Returning home from a business trip to discover his wife missing, a man delves deeper and deeper into a surreal kaleidoscope of half-baked leads, seduction, deceit, and murder. Does anyone in the building know something?

The Mediterranean summer: blue sea, blazing sun....and 250 kg of gold stolen by Rhino and his gang! They had found the perfect hideout: an abandoned and remote hamlet now taken over by a woman artist in search for inspiration. Unfortunately surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan: the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield....Relentless and mindblowing.
I love Bruno Forzani and Helene Cattet's work. They brought us "Amer"(2009) and "The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears."(2013) These are arthouse movies. These are good. Corpses Tan has a simple premise. Stolen gold. Hiding out. Cops. Fighting among themselves. How it is presented is what makes it beautiful. The director's style is basically a tribute to Giallo films. Including music. Corpses Tan is the one not really considered to be "Giallo." The film has wicked cuts in scenes, colours. Shots of a conversation that bounces between characters and also gets closer to their faces as it goes on. The use of the "time" element to show the viewer at what point you are watching. It's a unique style. It's best to watch it for yourself, immerse yourself in the visuals. This is a movie for cinephiles. If you appreciate film. Indeed, my favourite arthouse directors. If you love or even like this movie, please watch the others. Amer was my first and the one that I can never get out of my head. In a very good way. I'm so glad cinema offers so many ways for expression. Corpses does contain adult situations. Worth your $$$. Support these directors.
