The Bird With The Crystal Plumage
DIRECTOR: DARIO ARGENTO
CAST: EVA RENZI, ENRICO MARIA SALERNO, MARIO ADORF
Argento’s directorial debut, a thriller unlike anything that had come before it, stars Tony Musante as an American writer in Rome who witnesses a knife attack and, the first in a long line of amateur sleuths in Argento’s cinema, begins his own investigation into the identity of the black-gloved attacker. Shot in awesome widescreen Technicolor by the maestro Vittorio Storaro, with a sharp, singular, dramatically dissonant score by Ennio Morricone.
The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is screening as part of the Dario Argento series.
Screening in Italian with English subtitles.
