Movie Info

When the story begins a young girl who has wandered away from her nanny at a French ski resort is abducted, killed, and buried in the snow. Later, in Venice, the young daughter of Franco (George Lazenby), a popular sculptor, is stalked by a woman in a black veil. Finally, after several near-chances, the girl is grabbed, only to be found later floating in a canal. The police are as arrogant as they are stumped, so Franco, accompanied by his estranged wife, Elizabeth (Anita Strindberg), investigates. As Franco begins uncovering clues, the people he talks to about the case begin to die gruesome deaths. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Chi l'ha vista morire? (Who Saw Her Die?) (The Child)

All Critics (2)

Undeniably dated, even cheesy in parts ... what makes [Who Saw Her Die?] well worth watching is ... Lado's gliding camera and Ennio Morricone's magnificently eerie score.

Audience Reviews for Chi l'ha vista morire? (Who Saw Her Die?) (The Child)

A sculptor tracks his daughter's killer in Venice. Slightly more stylish than the usual second-string giallo, but mainly a snooze.

Giallo thriller about a child killer roaming the streets of Venice with an aggrieved father on his trail. Pretty well made with a story full of suspects and red herrings that'll keep you guessing till the end. It's a bit too tame for my demanding tastes but I still enjoyed it.

Aldo Lado proves again that he is one of the undisputed masters of the giallo--Who Saw Her Die? is a creepy, stylish, brutal, and sexy piece of filmmaking. It exhudes all of the hallmarks of the genre in the most striking way possible. Lado belongs beside Bava, Argento, and Martino as one of the genre's gods. He brings a haunting aura to a tale of perversity and cruelity, and Ennio Morricone's chilling score helps to further elevate this to classic status. Lado uses the Venice setting to full effect to create a brooding, fog-drenched, and gothic piece of suspense that, as a reviewer below notes, hints towards Nicolas Roeg's classic Don't Look Now. A tale of a father whose daughter is brutally murdered in a manner similar to a girl who was murdered a year or so earlier. The father begins to investigate and uncovers a conspiracy of perversion. Hence, Who Saw Her Die? not only participates in the giallo genre but also in the 1970s conspiracy genre along with classics like The Parallax View. If you enjoy giallo,the Who Saw Her Die? will not fail to disappoint. If you are new to the genre, then I tihnk you will still be impressed.
