Yesterday I watched “Bird with the Crystal Plumage” by Dario Argento, and I was a little bit let down.
Of course, it was an intriguing crime-story, very smooth camera-work, too, but overall the story turned
out to be a little bit lengthy and the stalking scenes where too rare, too short and they didn’t get much
interest from me. The final twist was nice, though, but again I expected the story to turn out more
sinister with a lot more at stake. Also the title-reference, when it was finally named, turned out be
kinda lame. But maybe I’m just spoiled, because I expected something like “Trauma” or “Stendhal
Syndrome” from a very early Dario Argento. High expectations can seriously ruin a movie for you.
