A dazzling combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, brilliant cinematography, gory violence, lush décor, and pounding soundtrack, Francesca tells the tale of a psychopath who uses Dante’s “Divine Comedy” as a clever reference to rid the city of impure souls through a series of gruesome murders. This audacious film synthesizes all the familiar Giallo motifs (psycho killers, blood violence, convoluted plot twists, pulse-pounding music) into an almost perfect symphony of fear that’s unlikely to ever be repeated on screen.
