The Stendhal Syndrome
DIRECTOR: DARIO ARGENTO
CAST: ASIA ARGENTO, THOMAS KRETSCHMANN, MARCO LEONARDI
Dad and daughter team together again in a deliciously warped psychological thriller that gets sleazy at the Uffizi, with Asia Argento as a police detective whose tracking of a serial murderer and rapist is complicated when she finds herself struck by a psychological affliction that renders her helpless in the presence of great art—a real Achilles’ heel when you’re on the job in Florence.
The Stendhal Syndrome is screening as part of the Dario Argento series.
