One of Argento's best films, it deserves a better Blu Ray!


What do you think of THE STENDHAL SYNDROME?

First time i saw it, on vhs, in 1997, i thought it was a bit boring and dull, and the bad quality of the vhs and its weak french dubbing didn't help.
Now, almost 20 years later, and after watching the film on dvd then Blu ray, i think it is really one of Argento's best films, it's manybe not perfect but it's ambitious, original, even unique, Asia Argento and Thomas Kretschmann's performances are excellent, and the opening and final scenes are superb...and i don't forget the incredible Ennio Morricone's soundtrack.
The US Blu Ray is a bit too grainy i think, i hope the film will be remeastered 4K, at least a new master for a cool looking Blu Ray, someday!
