Review

At a trendy London nightclub, Bernard (played by Jean-Louis Trintignant) sees a gorgeous young lady named Jane Burroughs (Ewa Aulin) whom he later discovers hiding in a room next to the recently murdered corpse of an old man. Jane swears that she is innocent and believes that this murder has been committed by the same men who arranged her father s accidental death. Bernard grabs Jane and they go on the run. Now framed for the murder, Bernard and his new girlfriend to try and solve the mystery with the police and some very nasty thugs on their trail.

This convoluted plot, loaded with twists and red herrings takes a backseat to the comic book style in which Deadly Sweet is delivered. Directly referencing Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow Up and psychically taking queues from Seijin Suzuki's Tokyo Drifter, Tinto Brass, a director better known for his catalog of erotic and exploitation features (Salon Kitty and Caligula), is firing on all cylinders here. His direction is fast and loose in this labor of love and there are too many film and pop culture references to list.

The camerawork is sharp, colorful, and makes the film look years ahead of its time. The film even switches to splendid black and white in strange, seemingly random intervals. Complimenting all this is the lightning fast editing with split screens and quick cuts that help to make the film into a decadent assault on the senses. The soundtrack by composer Armando Trovajoli is slinky and badass but the song Love Girl that plays on and off throughout the film is a chunk of super psychedelic awfulness.

Jean-Louis Trintignant (Without Apparent Motive) is ridiculously cool as Bernard, a clever son of a bitch and Ewa Aulin (of Death Smiled at Murder) is 17 different varieties of super hotness as Jane, the young damsel in distress. These two have a very bizarre and playful relationship. What better way to spice up your whirlwind romance than by trying to catch a murderer together? Now that s dating outside the box. In fact, most of this film deals with their burgeoning love affair.

Deadly Sweet is a pop art murder mystery/love story produced shortly before the giallo genre would explode into an unstoppable juggernaut in the early 70s. This swingin flick is a funny, sexy, and wildly eclectic masterpiece less concerned with plot than it is with reveling its youthful 60s vibe. There is very little bloodshed in Deadly Sweet but the quick pace and comic book action sequences make for a very entertaining and unique feature.

DVD Stuff

Deadly Sweet arrives via Cult Epics in an excellent anamorphic widescreen presentation. The picture is very clear with vibrant colors and deep blacks. There are only minor scratches (which only become more pronounced where they are intentional) in this nearly pristine print. The audio is a very clear Italian mono track with easy to read English subtitles.

Extras include an audio commentary by director Tinto Brass, the film s trailer, and a lobby card gallery. The audio commentary is kind of a tough nut to crack. Brass speaks English (not his native tongue) and is kind of hard to understand. But be sure to give it a listen, there is some great info about the film's production to be found here. --Doomed Moviethon.com

Everybody loves something sweet.

Deadly Sweet is truly a giallo filled with the traditional elements of mystery and crime, also incorporating so many elements of pop art and psychedelia, along with a very addictive rock soundtrack. This film had me in the first 10 minutes.

I primarily know Tinto Brass for his exploits in soft-core erotica, but Cult Epics will be releasing this unrated DVD of Deadly Sweet (aka Heart In His Mouth) by the end of April and I think it s a must-buy! The film itself is a terrific, newly restored print and is the uncensored Director s Cut. I love films that are uncensored and include everything as the director intended.

The story starts out with Jane Burroughs (Eva Aulin, Candy (1968)) and her brother Jerome Burroughs (Charles Kohler) viewing their father s corpse at the morgue with their mother. Next scene, they are all dancing at a night club in London! Daddy is dead but that doesn t mean one can t drown out their sorrows while dancing the night away at a nightclub with the sounds of the killer rock score by Armando Trovajoli. The music in the film had some sexual tinge to it that was very seducing, almost to the point of utter relaxation. Then enters Bernard (Jean-Louis Trintignant, A Man and a Woman (1966)) who immediately zones in on Jane and it was lust at first sight. She notices him and one can tell it is going to amount to nothing but trouble. Bernard is a French actor. When going to see his business partner upstairs to ask why his credit was no longer honored in the club, he finds him laying dead on the floor. Having been struck to the head with a hard object and with only Jane cringing in the corner, our lead actor dashes off with her and flees the crime scene.

One interesting piece of information is that the lead actress, Eva Aulin, was a 17-year old beauty contest winner, hailing from Sweden.

From this point on, it s a melange of pop art, psychedelia, artistic camera shots, very creative chase scenes bordering on being idyllically playful and artful at the same time, all staying true to the roots of the Italian yellow film but incorporating the visuals of erotic cartoonist Guido Crepax, that are sprinkled throughout the film.

The story of the film was loosely adapted from a novel by Sergio Donati that some say was an outrageous attempt to turn the crime genre on its head. I believe that Brass succeeded in that sense. Others say that cinema fumetti (Italian comic-book movies) was invented with this film, being a prior product to the more well-known Danger: Diabolik (1968) and Barbarella (1968). But that may be up for debate. The two lead actors went on to star in Death Laid An Egg (1968) a year later.

One scene that I enjoyed and really caught my eye was a scene with Bernard and Jane in which they are in a photo studio of Bernard s friend s place. Jane starts stripping her clothes off behind some white long sheets that are almost like transparent paper hanging from the ceiling (like large sheets for photo backdrop). It was a very sexy and sensuous scene and when Bernard tears his clothes off and runs to her, pulling the sheets down and wrapping her and him up in them, it became a scene that totally payed homage to Michelangelo Antonioni s Blowup (1966). Antonioni is also credited in the audio of the actual film.

I have only seen a handful, if even that, of gialli and I really did enjoy them. Though sometimes not as bloody or gore-filled as I am accustomed to and light on the nudity, these films offer something different that is both fascinating and intriguing hardcore art. Many of these films are filled with so much artisitic camera shots, angles, montages and techniques that even if one does not appreciate the film, one has to respect its style.

The dvd includes a lobby card gallery, the trailer, and an exclusive English audio commentary by the director. --Cult Reviews.com

Product Description

Starring 17-year-old beauty-contest winner Ewa Aulin (CANDY), and Jean-Louis Trintignant (A MAN AND A WOMAN), Deadly Sweet is a most unusual crime story. In the film, a French actor finds his business contact lying murdered on the floor. Rather than call the police, he decides to protect the young woman at the scene and nail down the true killers, which puts him on a collision course with the London underworld. Deadly Sweet leads us through a mind-bending series of pop-art visuals by renowned erotic cartoonist GUIDO CREPAX, split screens, triple split screens, and the seductive rock score by Armando Trovajoli. Bestselling filmmaker, Tinto Brass, who later gained fame for his soft-core erotica, wrote the screenplay in 1967, loosely adapted from a novel by Sergio Donati, as an outrageous attempt to turn the crime genre on its head. It can be said that with this film, Cinema Fumetti (comic-book movies) was invented prior to the more known DANGER: DIABOLIK and BARBARELLA.

Cult Epics is proud to present Deadly Sweet (aka Heart in his Mouth), a rare giallo thriller unseen since its initial theatrical release (1967), whose lead actors went on to star in DEAD LAID AN EGG, a year after.

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.

"Giallo" is an Italian word meaning "yellow," and is roughly analogous to the tern "Noir" (meaning "Black") used in Western film. Both Giallo and Noir are the worlds of pulp fiction, of dangerous dames and heroes in over their heads on the fun from desperate villains.

Tinto Brass's "Deadly Sweet" ("Col Cuore in Gola" or "Heart in his Mouth") is pure giallo fun, covering up a paper-thin plot (very loosely adapted from the novel by Sergio Donati) with a splashy veneer of 60s pyschedilia and pop-art inspired imagery. Director Tinto Brass was in his experimental phase, and "Deadly Sweet" is full of the innovative camera work that would appear later in films like Attraction (Nerosubianco) and The Howl.

The story begins at a party, where Bernard (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a French actor in town in London looking for work, has his eye on Jane (Ewa Aulin), a young, beautiful and rich girl who won't give Bernard the time of day. A little later at the same party, Bernard stumbles upon a crime scene, with Bernard's business contact dead on the floor and right at the feet of that self-same heiress Jane. Instead of turning her in, however, Bernard takes advantage of the situation to steal a kiss from Jane, then to pull her away promising to keep her safe and to uncover the real killers. That is the opening into a world of blackmail. Midgets and all sorts of wild things

A big draw for "Deadly Sweet" is the presence of actress Ewa Aulin. Aulin had won the title of Miss Teen Sweden in 1965 at age fifteen and later Miss Teen International in 1966.

For those people out there who thought director Tinto Brass only made movies about female bottoms, you will be pleasantly surprised with this gem. Cult Epics should be congratulated for releasing this wonderful hommage to Giallo films, comic books, swinging sixties London and Humphrey Bogart. Movie fans who loved Mario Bava's 'Danger:Diabolik' and Roman Coppola's 'CQ' will love this film and Ewa Aulin never looked sexier. Quality is fair to good with bright vibrant colors and in 1.85 wide screen in its Italian language with English subtitles. Also includes great audio commentary with Director Brass although sometimes his heavy accent is hard to decipher. Recommended

This fascinating, intriguing film from 1967 by renowned g I a l l o. filmmaker. T I n t o Brass, a wild mindbending ride whose brisk pace does not let up for an entire 99 minutes, features the film debut of Swedish beauty E w a A u l I n & the ever-enigmatic Jean Louis Trintignant & certainly has the look & sound of 1967, employing split screen, alternating between color and black-and-white & every plot element of true mystery, pitting the two characters against the police & the London underworld. Highly entertaining & highly recommended!
