The Perfume of the Lady in Black (8/10)

I had never heard of this psychological mystery until I saw it posted on a giallo site. It’s not really a giallo but certainly has all the visual style of one. Every set has a primary color associated with it and as you go from one scene to the next, the palette changes. Mimsy Farmer lives alone in a fancy apartment complex and, not unlike Rosemary’s Baby, everyone around her seems to have sinister motives. Eventually she starts seeing spooky things and the film starts to drift into weirdo territory. By the end you’ll be scratching your head as to what just happened, but it’s all so very arty.
