    Considered by many to be a remarkable return to vintage form for the Italian master of suspense and terror, Dario Argento (Tenebrae; Suspiria; Terror At The Opera), The Stendhal Syndrome stars the director's real life daughter, Asia Argento (xXx; The Red Siren) as Anna Manni. A young detective in Rome's anti-rape unit. Anna suffers from Stendhal Syndrome, a mental condition that causes her to retreat into horrifying hallucinations when confronted with works of art.

    On the trail of a serial rapist and killer, she is given the suspect's whereabouts by way of a tip-off. But, unknown to Anna, the killer has discovered the secret of her illness and uses it against her, eventually kidnapping her and forcing her to become an unwilling witness to his crimes. Of course, this being a Dario Argento film, nothing is quite as it seems and the plot takes a terrifying twist when Anna discovers the true face of madness.
