Movie Info

Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and creeping shadows of their giallo-worshiping first two films (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears) for blistering sun, creaking leather and raining bullets in this glorious homage to 1970s Italian crime films. After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on a classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring music by Ennio Morricone, Let the Corpses Tan is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream that will slamfire your senses like buckshot to the brain.

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (4)

If this is your thing, if you loved their previous movies, don't miss one. If you see film more as a storytelling vehicle than a visual medium, avoid it.

This is a fetishistically precise recreation of a dead retro style, with no substance on the menu beyond the second-hand or accidental.

September 14, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a profoundly weird film but hypnotic nonetheless.

September 8, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A spectacularly assaultive, borderline incoherent neo-Western that will recruit few new converts but is also guaranteed to leave no spectator indifferent.

August 7, 2017 | Full Review…

There's no doubting the sheer artistic and filmmaking spectacle on display.

July 19, 2018 | Full Review…

This is a quintessential Midnight Madness-emphasis on the "madness"-experience. It may not hold together, and it may be style over substance to the nth degree, but it's a unique and singular vision...
