Directing duo Hélène Cattetová and Bruno Forzani, yet cooperating exclusively on the short piece, got my first full-length movie the de facto povídkovou form. Their Amer is assigned to the genre of giallo films - the Italian crime thrillers with the horror and erotic elements, which in particular in the the seventies famous directors Dario Argento (Demons [1985]), Mario Bava or Lucio Fulci the Black cat [1981]). The image in its essence a characteristic of this genre fills, but in the form of sophisticated formal games-link. Three short, almost bezeslovné stories with three different old women protagonistkami to work independently and as cut-outs from different phases of life, the same heroine, the film contextualizes the environment of a mysterious old house with a large garden and its surroundings, settling in it the special characters and equips subjects with symbolic potential. A small girl, barely a schoolgirl, explores the compelling, terrifying corners of the setmělého house and discovers his forbidden place - a bed with a corpse and the bed of mating parents. Still a bit of a childlike naive and like a retard, but your feminine appeal just emerging teenager uses boredom while waiting for my mother at the hair salon to adventure with an unknown young man. An attractive woman stands at the suburban station and leaves to an unknown driver take you to the famous house, persecuted and in the end caught at first seemingly halucinačními visions. For an engaging, artfully dávkovanou the poetics of this film is the key to building and escalation of tension, gradual flipping excited everyday to once a psychedelic gruesome, one sensual, one of the bloodthirsty position. Cattetová with Forzanim tension build and are articulated by, in particular shearing and comprehensive (non-verbal) sound component. In addition to the excellent acting performances of all three protagonistek shapes the atmosphere of the film, picture composition and framing, the zoom, the color of the mask, ambient noise and the sounds of the environment and significant catchy melodies. The high rate of the stylized image in many ways, it hinders the resolution of film facts from the fantasies, hallucinations and nightmares. Offers-therefore, if Amer on the thematic plane as the key themes the importance of vision, physicality and mortality in human life, this is a stylish exhibicionistický image individually explore their limits in the possibilities of film language.
