“A film of rare beauty, a celebration of love’s absence and the ferocious force of the gaze.”
“One of Argento’s more lavish works, making great use of the grand opera house location but doing so in a very Argento manner.”
— Live For Films
For many years, the film that many consider Dario Argento’s last masterpiece has been unavailable to screen in theaters. Now, it is back. Set in the Parma Opera House during a run of a very ’80s production of Verdi’s Macbeth, the film features some of Argento’s best hyper-real shock murders, with Argento again pulling on the black leather gloves for a round of POV bloodlettings.
