Stunning Art for ‘The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears.’

A great majority of movie posters are uninspiring. You know it’s true. They are, by and large, utterly routine and photoshopped affairs with little more to say than “Come and see this new film!”
They all look the same too.
However, a few lucky ones break away from the unadventurous monotony and stand in their own right as pieces of graphic art worthy of a place on any cinephiles’ bedroom or office wall.
Some of them are actually released and others exist as “alternatives” that, thanks to the wonders of the Internet, we can still get to view and admire.

The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears
The clear inspiration is the Art Nouveau movement and its crazed and dreamy association with Absinthe, probably the most famous drink associated with La Belle Époque.
However, “The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears” (2013) is a neo-giallo and the art noveau grandeur also cleverly references the famed work of Dario Argento, the Italian maestro behind “Suspiria” (1977) and “Inferno” (1980) as well as classic giallo tropes.
This is a very beautiful piece of artwork that captures the allure and shattering surrealism of the movie.
