Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, the co-directors behind 2009’s absolutely stunning giallo-inspired arthouse nightmare Amer and follow-up The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears are back with Laissez bronzer les cadavres!, or, Let the Corpses Tan! With the film currently in post-production, the first teaser has landed. It doesn’t tell us a lot, but is still pretty striking in its own way.
Set during a beautiful Mediterranean summer, the story follows Rhino and his criminal gang, who have just made off with 250 kg of gold and are hiding out in a remote, abandoned hamlet occupied only by an artist in search for inspiration. The hoodlums’ sanctuary however, is compromised by the arrival of two cops and some surprise guests, and the heavenly place once home to wild happenings and orgies soon becomes a gruesome battlefield.
Let the Corpses Tan! stars Elina Löwensohn (Dark Water, A Very Long Engagement), Stéphane Ferrara (Paprika) and Bernie Bonvoisin.
Hopefully we’ll get to see a little more soon.
