U.S. Trailer for a Franco-Belgian Neo-Western ‘Let the Corpses Tan’

Franco-Belgian Neo-Western

Kino Lorber has released an official US trailer for a gritty shoot ’em up neo-western thriller Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres), the latest from Brussels-based writer-directors Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears).

Adapted from Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid’s influential 1971 French pulp novel, the film is an homage to 1970s Italian crime films and also features music by Ennio Morricone.

Bernier (Marc Barbé), a clapped-out writer, is living in crumbling bohemian splendor in a residence atop a craggy peak overlooking the Mediterranean (most of the filming was done in Corsica). He passes the time in a sun-stroked stupor amid various hangers-on including his eccentric sometime muse, Luce (Elina Löwensohn).

The cast also includes Stéphane Ferrara, Bernie Bonvoisin, and Michelangelo Marchese. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster below. Looks good, I’ll be seeing the f*ck out of this movie when it comes out.

The Mediterranean summer: blue sea, blazing sun….and 250 kg of gold stolen by Rhino and his gang! They had found the perfect hideout: an abandoned and remote hamlet now taken over by a woman artist in search for inspiration. Unfortunately surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan: the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield….Relentless and mindblowing.
