Synopsis:
From Giulio Questi, comes one of the most startling and shocking Italian thrillers you will ever see. It craftily subverts conventions and transcends its genre roots with a tale of genetically modified meat, greed and murder at a rural poultry farm! Anna (Gina Lollobrigida) and Marco (Jean-Louis Trintignant) run an automated state-of-the-art facility and develop a strain of boneless, mutant chickens. Marco appears to lead a double life as a serial killer who specialises in stabbing prostitutes to death. When Anna's amorous and alluring cousin Gabri (Ewa Aulin) starts a steamy affair with Marco and discovers his darker side, she plans to murder Anna and frame Marco for the crime...
Compellingly crafted, brilliant and bizarre, this is a one-of-a-kind murder mystery. It boasts a thematic depth and richness - including a savage and subversive attack on the established order - that elevates it above and beyond Italian genre cinema of the era.
