After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. A glorious homage to 1970's Italian crime films and featuring vintage music cues by Ennio Morricone, LET THE CORPSES TAN is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. and at the Locarno Film Festival. "A feverish, obsessive act of cinematic rehabilitation, a shoot-'em-up conceived in tribute to a peculiar strain of blood-spattered B-movies from the 1960s and '70s." - Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
