    Recalling the captivating cinematic style, recurring themes and bold visual motifs seen in the works of directors such as Dario Argento, Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci, Cattet and Forzani's highly original and visionary tribute to the Italian masters is a virtually dialogue-free, Freudian tale of sexual awakening, obsession and murder.

    The story unfolds in three parts as Ana (played, respectively, by actresses Cassandra Forêt, Charlotte Eugène-Guibeaud and Marie Bos) progresses from childhood through adolescence to womanhood. For Ana, in all three stages of her life, fear, sensuality and the threat of violence are constant companions, each lurking in her mind's eye and waiting to take physical form.

    Scored (in 'Tarantino style') utilizing recycled Italian movie soundtrack music composed by Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Adriano Celentano and Stelvio Cipriani and destined for cult status, Amer is "a succulently visual feast of horror, sex, chills and thrills" (Bizarre) and a must-see for fans of arthouse, horror and independent cinema.
