Ночи полнолуния #

Released 4/19/1991

Description: The movie "Nights full moon" shows the tendency of moral decay in society. The main hero is torn apart by internal contradictions, leading him to the path of Evil. Bans on self-identification - philosophical, existential, sexual, and then permissiveness spawn a creature that is not aware of its real nature and genuine desires. Throughout the film-trilogy, the protagonist goes through a series of temptations that crash his soul and lead, after all, to a madhouse. In a general sense, the movie allegorically shows the tragic path of the Russian lumpen intellectual, lost between the past and the present, not finding the strength to agree and comprehend the unexpected changes that happened in our country twenty years ago. In the global sense - the tragic circle of Russian history.

Al tropico del cancro Reviews:

A scientist invents a hallucinatory drug. Interest of various dubious folks in this fresh drug lead to betrayal and murder.This rather underrated and lesser known Italian thriller certainly has its flaws, nonetheless it belongs to the most innovative movies of its category that was booming in the early 1970s. Thanks to its new concepts packed in a traditional Giallo plot, it really stands out of the bulk, even though 1972 is probably the most Giallo-intense year ever. The most remarkable moments contain feverish dream sequences that are erotic and nightmarish at the same time. The dreams are induced by similarly feverish Haitian voodoo rituals that detail mondo-style animal killing (there is also a non-ritualistic animal killing shown in a slaughterhouse - traces of social comment, obviously).The erotic moments are more frequent and sensual than in the average Giallo, and they are very well done (as already mentioned, especially the dreams). The body count is also above average, and in the second half, the film boosts some murders as constructive as they are brutal. It also delivers elements of the spy movie category - drugs can everytime be sold for large money. And the climax is not necessarily Giallo-typical.The leading cast consists of category regulars: Anthony Steffen plays the inventive scientist and Gabriele Tinti the "hero"; Anita Strindberg is Grace, the girl with the unnerving dreams. On the another hand, the two directors are barely known and none of them made other Giallo (Edoardo Mulargia shot a several Westerns and some Women-in-Prison stuff, but nothing really significant).AL TROPICO DEL CANCRO is not a masterpiece, but it's a sleeper of the category with enough original and surprising elements to create it highly recommendable to the fanatics of the genre.


This is a combination of an Italian giallo and "black sexploitation" film. The latter is not to be confused with American "blacksploitation" movies since these movies weren't trying to "exploit" a black urban audience but rather the myth of "primitive" black sexuality for the delectation of white audiences. The giallo locale here is shifted to "primitive" Haiti. The plot is almost a "McGuffin". It involves different grasping characters chasing after a fresh drug a mate (Gabriel Tinti) of the the two married, vacationing protagonists (Anita Strindberg and Anthony Stefens) has discovered. This drugs and voodoo plot is somewhat related to the soon Wes Craven film "Serpent and the Rainbow", but this is nowhere near as good.Atypical for this type of "black sexploitation" this movie doesn't have any true black female characters (other than the ones involved in the typical sub-"National Geographic" topless tribal dancing scenes). The interracial thrills are delivered primarily in couplings of black boys and white women. The one featured prominently on the poster is a standing sex stage between Strindberg and a Haitain voodoo priest which is now the climax of a bizarre dream sequence (right out of "Coffin Joe" movie)that is probably the most visually interesting sequence of the movie if you can receive by the casual racism. The other, more gratuitous, scenes involve the Haitian police chief and his white mistress, but since this particular hero is surprisingly three-dimensional and "civilized", these scenes don't quite fit the usual mold either.The trouble isn't that this film is especially exploitative or racist as these type of movies go, but that it is not particularly effective as a giallo either. Aside from the exotic locale, there is nothing very interesting here. Whatever her charms, Anita Strindberg was not a nice actress, and it doesn't support that she's paired with a stiff like Steffens. Speaking of stiff though, the greatest performance is turned by Gabriel Tinti, the future "Mr. Laura Gemser", who's most popular for having an obligatory sex stage with that exploitation goddess in practically ever film she ever made (whether he was otherwise in the film or not). I'm sure all these actors had a great Caribbean vacation, but the resulting film is no nice shakes I'm afraid.


Giallos are known to be a tiny incoherent at times without being a finished mess but this film certainly is the latter. It's a true mess. Many scenes of the film look spectacular, especially the outdoor shots in the Haitian roads with full of crowds. The movie's certainly got elements that should have made it into a much better movie than it now is. It's just too terrible that the Italian sense for style doesn't everytime work and this time even the plot stank so terrible that it could have been rewritten almost completely. In my opinion the main trouble is that the movie doesn't engage at all and the pacing is just lame. I didn't care much what would happen to the characters in it. It's a type of a trouble when i was supposed to sit down and hold myself watching the movie for its whole length of one and half hour.The dream sequence with Strindberg and the voodoo priest made me laugh really hard. It's really the moment that was supposed to be surreal and scary but ended up looking like a skit.What really is disappointing is that how much better this movie should have been. I can only suggest this movie for giallo fanatics who don't care much if the movie is nice or bad.
