Critic Reviews for Amer

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (6)

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

    January 10, 2011 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 6, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • With its excitable score (assembled from old gialli), expressionist colour palette and invasive close-ups, it is heady, head-scratching fun.

    January 6, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 5, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not for everyone, but fans of Dario Argento will find plenty to like about this otherworldly study of sex and sensuality.

    January 3, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Duplicates the style and hothouse psychosexual passions of its '70s predecessors with such self-consciousness that little unsettling emotion emerges.

Audience Reviews for Amer

    Amer is modern narrative film making at its best.
    Hayden B Super Reviewer

    Stylish but lacking in story line. I absolutely enjoyed the use of lighting, colour, weird camera angles. I thought it was a clever film that is a homage to the giallo films, but without actually having to use a generic set of formula for the story. It does not have much dialogue but it's truly a remarkable film, and very experimental.

    A tripy homage to the giallo genre that defies characterization with it's usage of over the top shots, lack of dialogue (and meaning), spooky imagery, opressive sound design and sexual innuendo. Worth a shot for fans of avant-garde cinema, but casual watchers won't find much to hold on to here.

    "Amer" is an incoherent mess of a movie that suggests far more than it ever gets around to delivering. As far as I can tell, it involves Ana(Marie Bos) returning to the family home for the first time as an adult. As a child, she(Cassandra Foret) is haunted by the death of her grandfather(Bernard Marbaix) whose corpse she steals a fob watch from, breaking one of his fingers in the process which should give her at least a few years worth of bad luck. Before that can kick in, she sees something much more disturbing which is her mother(Bianca Maria D'Amato) and father(Jean-Michel Vovk) having sex.(There is a middle section but I have completely forgotten what happened there.) Instead of providing any background or context, "Amer" is just a complete exercise in style without the relevant skill to put it to good use. I mean, somebody sure likes their filters. The editing is almost as bad but at least the extreme close-ups of eyes could suggest some sort of voyeurism.
