The overall style and swinging '60s jazzy score sold me more on this one than the actual plot about a murdered nightclub owner. It's worth a slow afternoon watch, but nothing you need to run out and grab immediately. Rental.
First of all, let me say right off the bat that if you don't know who the killer turns out to be in this film you're just plain ignorant. The title says it all really, and perhaps they could've come up with something better than Deadly Sweet for an English language release. I've never really been much of a Tinto Brass fan. I've scarcely seen any of his work outside of the much-maligned Caligula, so I went into this not really knowing what to expect. What I got was an art film disguised as a murder mystery, and not a very good one. People keep calling it a giallo, but that's just not befitting for it at all. It's an exercise in art filmmaking with a lame story, puncuated by fast cutting, pop art graphics and an almost knee-jerk use of vibrant colors. Sure it's pretty to look at, the fast cutting is almost exhausting to take in at times and it's artfully well-made, but it just fails as a commercial film trying to tell a story - which is what it was originally aiming at. It's supposedly a rip-off of Blow Up, but I haven't seen that yet to either agree or disagree. All I know is that it is neither a good murder mystery, nor is it a good giallo. It's an art film, and if you can look past its lack of storytelling, you might get something out of it.
