... those willing to immerse themselves in the film's own peculiar sensibility (never before has the connection between horror films and pornography been more obvious) will find it to be a rewarding, if also disturbing, experience.

This is art-house horror, a pure cinema for connoisseurs, a return to late-19th-century decadence.

It's beautifully made but feels more like an art installation than something you might savour in a cinema.

By turns disturbing, suspenseful, puzzling and terrifying, Amer is a stylishly directed, visually stunning pastiche of Italian genre cinema with a superb soundtrack and terrific performances from the three leads.

For all its gloss and panache and giddying crash zooms to the keyhole, Amer is finally little more than a prolonged tease of a movie; provocation without a purpose.

Electric Sheep

Generally, Amer's film language is akin to a glossy car advert in the style of giallo. At other times, the filmic experimentation is uncompromising, any meaning dissolves and only enigmatic imprints are left.

With its excitable score (assembled from old gialli), expressionist colour palette and invasive close-ups, it is heady, head-scratching fun.

Fans lamenting the decline of Italian fear maestro Dario Argento will be relieved to find his legacy in such talented hands.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's perhaps asking a bit much to read it as anything more than a claustrophobic portrait of sexual danger, but it still fulfils that highly specific brief with blood-splashed gusto.

Not for everyone, but fans of Dario Argento will find plenty to like about this otherworldly study of sex and sensuality.

Kevin Harley
Total Film

Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet's baroque Belgian beauty pays homage to '70s Italian horror but brims with its own sexualised currents of threat and promise.

The Skinny

Near wordless, the film is a banquet of baroque imagery and kaleidoscopic colour.

Lessons of Darkness

Duplicates the style and hothouse psychosexual passions of its '70s predecessors with such self-consciousness that little unsettling emotion emerges.

[T]hey have re-created, in exaggerated form, the virtues and vices of '70s/'80s Italian giallos...

Shared Darkness

A woozy, deeply eroticized and entirely cinematic fever-dream, an homage to Italian giallo re-imagined as a sort of avant-garde, French rave trance film.

A voluptuous wallow in recycled psychosexual kitsch.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A bravura exploration of fear and desire, a visual tour de force composed of cropped images, strobe cuts, bizarre psychological twists and a steamy sensuality.

Movieline

Unsettling, energizing and more than a little mystifying, Amer is the kind of movie that may leave you feeling indifferent or puzzled at the end. But damned if it doesn't return, days later, to visit -- kind of like a killer in black leather gloves.
