The Perfume of the Lady in Black (Blu-ray)
Directed by Francesco Barilli
Luigi Antonio Guerra
Director Francesco Barilli's hallucinatory giallo horror-thriller stars Mimsy Farmer who portrays Sylvia, a chemist who begins to suffer from strange visions; a mysterious woman in black applying perfume in a mirror appears to her and strangers follow her everywhere she goes. Barilli's psychological investigation into the workings of the mind becomes apparent when it is revealed that as a child, Sylvia committed a horrible crime. The slow progression from successful scientist to a woman on the verge of insanity shows an in-depth look at the intricacies of the haunted mind. This is a remarkable film, weaving reality, fantasy and memory into an almost seamless fabric.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Original Trailer, Interview with the Director, Short Film "The Wandering Knight (Il Cavaliere Errante)" by Francesco Barilli (23 min.), fully illustrated booklet containing critical analysis, New and improved English subtitle translation
"Perfume of the Lady in Black is one of the top ten Italian genre films ever made, and is thoroughly recommended to fans of both serious cinema and of Italian horror films. Barilli's film is his masterpiece." - Horror View
