LET THE CORPSES TAN (LAISSEZ BRONZER LES CADAVRES)

  • Filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and bloody shadows of their previous films (AMER, THE STRANGE COLOR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS) for a sun-soaked adventure fueled by machine-gunfire and creaking leather. A small group of robbers pull off a daring roadside heist, then flee to a hillside villa, pulling its unwitting inhabitants into a hellish and kaleidoscopic shootout. This ambitious risk of a film pays off in spades, proving that the duo’s filmmaking prowess has never been contained to one single aesthetic but instead evolves as the worlds they create expand. A brutal but striking experience not to be missed, LET THE CORPSES TAN will keep you up all night. – Lane Kneedler
