Audience Reviews for La Corta notte delle bambole di vetro (Short Night of the Glass Dolls)
A disappointing giallo. The premise is relatively strong - an American journalist in Prague is discovered in a cataleptic stupor, mistaken for dead and delivered to the morgue; will he snap out of it before his own autopsy? - but the flashback story binding the thing together, some random guff about a missing girlfriend and a group of Satanists, is thoroughly dreary and too short on incident. Distinguished only by the presence of Ingrid Thulin and a below-par Morricone score, the best I can say of Short Night of Glass Dolls is that, like many another giallo (The Perfume of the Lady in Black, The House with Laughing Windows, etc), at least it has the courage of its own grisly convictions; the ending is almost worth waiting for.
An American journalist recalls investigating the disappearance of his Czech girlfriend---as he lies on a mortuary slab, either dead or in a deep catatonic state. Extremely slow-moving and not worth the eventual black magic payoff. The title has nothing to do with anything.
Told in flashbacks as our hero lies on a coroner's table, alive but frozen and unable to alert them that he isn't dead, this one makes for interesting viewing. Our lead is on the hunt for his missing girlfriend (the always lovely Barbara Bach) and meets with suspicious dead ends at every turn, until he ultimately finds himself in over his head.
Worth a rental for sure.
