Viewing Notes

Amazing sound design coupled with equally amazing cinematography makes Amer a standout. If I’d have seen this before seeing The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears at Fantastic Fest, I’d have been even more excited to see it.

Amer has a lot of tense eroticism with next to no nudity, which is an amazing feat in and of itself.

I really need to own both this and Strange Colour on Bluray.

I was gonna ask you if ended up buying it. I def want the Blu b/c the DVD PQ wasn’t so hot. Hoping it looks better on Blu. Can’t wait for Strange Colour to get released!!

I finally decided to just rent it from Netflix on DVD, but would love to own it on Blu. And once again, the soundtrack is amazing. Since I don’t think either film has had a proper CD soundtrack release, I think I’ll just try to track down the songs individually at some point. I think for the most part they’re older Morricone and other Italian composer pieces from previous films.
