A man running up the stairs, upstairs finds the mutilated corpse. The only thing he knows is to note that from the room disappeared oil painting. Pianist decides to murder to solve on their own, since he sinks into the labyrinth of mysteries, which lines the poetics of the roman streets and the gruesome work of maniacal killer. The legendary opus Daria Argenta from the mid-70's. years bears all the hallmarks of its visual richness and surreal composition. The main character displayed an excellent David Hemingsem are looking for mystery, you subconsciously solved already in the introduction. Along with it, the director plays with the viewer like a cat with a mouse, still more dragging a loop of optical and musical illusions. The dark alleys of the metropolis, freudian symbolism and bizarre characters is symbolically diving into the red spectrum of scary nightmares, when you are not sure whether a mirage hiding a hallucination, or vice versa, the character of flesh and bones. Unreal absurd "disappear" and real change to the disturbing symbols. Profondo rosso is, moreover, the first film in which the director left the your favorite composer Morriconeho to for the needs of the movie formed his own band, the legendary Goblins.
