Shot on what appears to be vintage film stock and driven by brilliantly lush and complex sound design, Amer perfectly captures the feel and editing style of the original classic giallo pictures without ever becoming precious or coy about the exercise. This is not a period film – the cars and other technology is current – but the recapturing of a lost style. This is not mimicry but a performance from a stunningly talented pair of young directors, who have mastered a lost language and made it purely and entirely their own, employing it to create their own work rather than recycling others’. Flawless. (Todd Brown; Twitchfilm)
