Filmmaking duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani already captured our attention with their giallo inspired films Amer and The Stranger Color of Your Body’s Tears, and now they’re back with an adaption of Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid’s 1971 crime thriller, Let the Corpses Tan. This neo-western continues their stylized homage to genre film and is set to make its world premiere at the Locarno Film Festival.  Ahead of its premiere brings the debut of the stunning retro one-sheet that makes me want this film in my eye holes immediately, below. I think we can safely count on this one to be extremely violent.

The film stars Elina Löwensohn, Stéphane Ferrara, Bernie Bonvoisin, Michelangelo Marchese, Marc Barbé, Hervé Sogne, Marine Sainsily, Pierre Nisse, Dorylia Calmel, Aline Stevens, Dominique Troyes, and Bamba Forzani Ndiaye.

Laissez Bronzer Les Cadavres, or Let the Corpses Tan, will premiere at the Locarno Film Festival on August 4, 2017.

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.
