Trailer Park Tuesdays - The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears

This week at Trailer Park Tuesdays we got a freshie.  No holiday leftovers here.  Oooo, and it's French!

The movie trailer this week is a brand new spot for The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears, following a teaser trailer that debuted earlier this year.  Strange Colour is an arthouse/mystery/horror film about a man who is searching his apartment building for his missing wife but at every turn finds violence and sex instead. (I hate when that happens)

Those familiar with filmmaking duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Fazani's previous film Amer (2009) or their segment O is for Orgasm from anthology film The ABCs of Death (2012) should be looking forward to this and know what to expect.

If you're not familiar, what you can expect is a strongly visual film with a vivid color palette, meticulous art direction, and a camera that probes endlessly.  Also, it will have a carefully constructed soundtrack, as the aural aspects of their work is just as important as the visual.  Also-also, it'll have stylized bits of violence, orchestrated to the nth degree.  Here's the trailer:

This looks sharp.  I like the escalation it presents while remaining vague.  Personally, I'm sold on this one; I'll be checking it out as soon as it is made available to me.

Apparently The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears will see release in France in the spring of 2014, so lord knows when it will be available over here in the States.  Not soon enough, whenever it is.
