Description: Directed by documentary filmmaker Giulio Questi, this bizarre giallo focuses on a love triangle between three people: the psychopathic Marco (Jean-Louis Trintignant), Anna (Gina Lollobrigida) and Gabrielle (Ewa Aulin). It’s a tale of love, murder and chickens, a surrealist giallo (or ‘thrilling all’italiana’, if you prefer).
Marco marries Anne – a wealthy owner of a chicken farm, but her cousin and her lover decide to get rid of a married couple and pick the farm itself. For a start they sent an anonymous letter to Anna, compromising her husband.
Review: “Death Laid An Egg ” – a little-known Italian thriller with Jean -Louis Trentinyanom and Gina Lollobrigida in the lead roles. According to the style of the film reminds Jalloh . This manifests itself in the camera work and fine details (like a cold murder weapon ) . Toward the end of the film it becomes clear that this is not real Jalloh , a game of it. The creators used the form and content of adjust by itself . Here a little, and philistinism ridiculed (episode in the house of the main characters from the room ), and the idea of “death , which laid an egg ” ( the final one eats this ” egg “). In general, the movie is very unusual. At the main character unhealthy psyche and cinema related from his face – in the end the story turned anxious and sick . The film is extremely ragged , rough and ugly . Beautiful I would not have called it, on the contrary – it attracts psychopathic atmosphere , surrealism (from which the band bursting ) and strangeness in all senses.
