DHARMA GUNS en Irlande
France, Portugal | 2010 | 93mins | 35mm | Colour and Black & White
This stylish and mysterious punk thriller from maverick director
F.J. Ossang concerns an amnesiac who finds himself in the Azores, the apparent victim of a dubious scientific procedure called Genetic Double. The tenuous nature of his condition ensures he is constantly questioning what is happening around him as he begins to wonder if he has been merely a guinea pig at the behest of a bizarre scientist.
A revisiting of the Eurydice and Orpheus myth, Dharma Guns is steeped in the tradition of Nosferatu and Vampyr, and is an odyssey through dark and transgressive cinema, burning with a Dionysian intensity and rage.
