"A rather unusual agenda from Tinto Brass, who obviously found his later niche in "T&A" movies. Col cuore in gola (1967) is a psychedelic, pop art giallo that can just come from the great era of the late 60's/70's.
Starting from the nice credits and music you immediately like this film and this is just the beginning. Trintignant finds a corpse in a nightclub, beside the lovely Aulin who just says "I wasn't it". Convinced that she is innocent, he wants to help her and wants to find out the murderer. Aulin's brother should solve this case, as both are searching for him.
Though not quite without problems. The Story itself is not that convincing (rather unimportant).
But what here is really of interest is the unconventional style of Brass: split screen (even triple split screens) some scenes in black and dark yellow filter and more, and in the "middle" of course, the presence of two very convincing leads: cool Trintignant and hot Ewa Aulin (somehow priceless here in white fishnet stockings). The result is a quite ok giallo with (obviously) strong references to pop art.
In the same year Aulin and Trintignant appeared in the avant garde 1968 Giallo masterpiece "Death Laid an Egg", Col Cuore in Gola is not great as the Death Laid an Egg film but is definitely entertaining."
