Competition: ‘The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears’ *closed*

An homage to the classic Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci Italian giallo horror films of the 1970s and 80s, The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears (2013) is a visually dazzling experience from the creators of cult 2011 hit Amer that takes you on a journey into mystery and blood-soaked terror that you will never forget. To celebrate the home entertainment release of Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s extravagant new neo-giallo, we have THREE DVD copies of The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears to give away courtesy of our good friends at Metrodome Distribution. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Telecommunications executive Dan Kristensen (Klaus Tange) who returns home from a business trip in Frankfurt to find his wife missing and, in true Euro-horror tradition, he may be losing his mind. His apartment building could double up as a Lynchian studio lot; a series of rooms constructed for the capture of performance. The pomp and artifice are a voyeur’s paradise and, to that end, Cattet and Forzani’s The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears is a film about both looking and being watched. There’s glass everywhere, but everything is obfuscated in one or way or another. From the painted windows to the broken mirrors; we are watching, but we can never truly see.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

Which colour does the Italian word giallo, used to describe a certain style of horror-thriller, refer to?

a) Blue

c) Yellow
