“Seek it out and unravel its mystery… One of the most unique and overlooked Italian films of the ‘70s.”

“An unforgettable experience… A unique and prescient film that is as stylish as it is evocative and mysterious.”

“Psychedelically haunting… For those longing for an existentialist adventure that combines the narrative mystery of SOLARIS with the vivid visions of Argento, this is the film you’ve been dreaming of.”

World Premiere of Severin Films’ New 2K Restoration!

In the most criminally underseen giallo mindf*ck of the ’70s, Florinda Bolkan—the Brazilian-born actress whose seminal films include INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION, A LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN, A BRIEF VACATION and FLAVIA THE HERETIC—stars as a freelance translator haunted by disturbing images from an old sci-fi movie. But when she wakes one morning missing all memory of her past three days, a series of odd clues—a torn postcard from an unfamiliar hotel, a blood-stained dress in her closet—will lead her to a place where recognition, identity, and the truth are never what they seem.

Nicoletta Elmi (DEEP RED), Evelyn Stewart (THE SWEET BODY OF DEBORAH), Oscar winner Lila Kedrova (THE TENANT), and Klaus Kinski co-star in this “visually stunning mind-bending gem” (Mondo Digital) directed by Luigi Bazzoni (THE FIFTH CORD) featuring cinematography by three-time Oscar-winner Vittorio Storaro (THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, APOCALYPSE NOW) and a score by Oscar-winner Nicola Piovani (THE PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL), now fully restored and scanned in 2K from the original negative recently located in a Bologna lab vault. – Gary Hertz
