Entertainment Reviews:

Empire - 01/07/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's exquisitely shot, well edited, and both sound and visual design are a triumph."
Total Film - 01/02/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "Bruno Forzani and Helene Cattet's baroque Belgian beauty pays homage to '70s Italian horror but brims with its own sexualised currents of threat and promise."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2011
"[I]t's exquisite crafting makes it stand out as a true original in today's horror market."

Product Description:

The power and danger of eros plays a key role for three women of different ages who may or may not be the same person in this enigmatic picture. The film was chalked up by many as an homage to the gory European giallos of the 1960s and 1970s, but it's also influenced heavily by the narratively cryptic surrealism of directors such as David Lynch. Directors Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet undertake an episodic approach by dividing the material into three thematically linked segments. In the first, a young girl is at home as her grandfather dies and her grandmother begins performing a series of bizarre rituals designed to either bring him back to life or ease his passage to the next world; as this is happening, the girl becomes aware that her parents are making love elsewhere in the house. Years later, a teenage girl goes into town with her mother to run some errands, comes face to face with the power of her sexuality, and learns how she can use her allure to change the behavior of men. In the final segment, an adult woman returns to the house where she grew up, which has fallen into disrepair -- and discovers that she may not be alone. AMER was the first feature-length project from directors Cattet and Forzani.
