A forbidden affair between a teacher and student at a girl's college sets the stage for cold-blooded murder. As the school is rocked by the twisted secrets unearthed by the police investigation, the killer strikes again and again. From veteran director/c & cinematographer, Massimo Dallamano comes a stylish, violent murder mystery in the grand European genre known as the 'giallo.' Based on the work of acclaimed suspense novelist Edgar Wallace and featuring a lush, haunting score by Ennio Morricone. This is a digitally re-mastered, uncut, widescreen anamorphic special edition DVD.

The script and the plot twists are very clever.
A. Griffiths
Ennio Moricone's score alone makes WHYDTS worth a viewing, but the film is actually more interesting and more sophisticated than a majority of films of the time.
D. D. Maingot
This solidly plotted and engrossing murder thriller is easily among the finest giallos ever made.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? (1972): Enrico Rossini (Fabio Testi) is a married teacher involved in an affair with one of his students, Elizabeth (Christine Galbó). One afternoon in a park, while enjoying one of their amorous trysts, Elizabeth witnesses the murder of a young woman, a crime that her lover does not see. When the corpse of a student is found at the park, the teacher finally believes Elizabeth and decides to revisit the scene of the murder. More girls are killed and the police begin to suspect that Enrico is the murderer. In a desperate attempt to clear his name, Enrico turns detective and eventually discovers the secret of a young woman named Solange (Camille Keaton), whose shocking past is linked to both the killer's choice of victims and the gruesome manner in which he dispatches them.
This solidly plotted and engrossing murder thriller is easily among the finest giallos ever made. The conventional storyline is enlivened with genuinely surprising twists, strong characters and a shocking, unexpected ending. Slickly directed by Massimo Dallamano, and featuring striking cinematography by Aristide Massachessi (who, as Joe D'Amato, had a subsequent career as one of the most incompetent directors of all time), SOLANGE is an unusually well made and restrained Italian thriller. Excellent performances from Fabio Testi, Joachin Fuchsberger, Karin Baal and the beautiful Christine Galbo raise the movie's quality level even higher. A fine, moody Ennio Morricone score provides some necessary tension enhancement. If you've never seen a giallo before, the film is a great starting point for anyone interested in taking an initial plunge into this fascinating genre.
The Shriek Show DVD is one of this small company's finest releases yet. The widescreen (1.

I have seen several "giallos", and apart from those by Dario Argento, they can be on the most part, quite dull and routine police dramas. But "What Have You Done To Solange" really surprised me, in fact I would say it's the best non-Argento giallo I have ever seen. A couple taking a romantic boat ride along a river are interrupted when the young woman sees something that frightens her on the riverbank. As she is too disturbed to enjoy the boat trip any more, the afternoon ends on a sour note for the couple, only for them to find out the next day that a brutal murder was indeed commited on the riverbank. Things only get worse from then on.

What I like so much about the film is that the plot unfolds fairly and squarely before your eyes, and you get to see the clues as they appear, the same time as the investigating police do. Unlike some "giallos" where red herrings and ambiguity surround too much of the on-screen action, the clues here are uncovered logically, and you'll find that you take in each new turn of events with growing interest and try to unravel the mystery for yourself. The script and the plot twists are very clever. Very soon after the opening, you learn that the couple on the boat were in fact a married teacher and his female pupil in the midst of an illicit affair, which puts them in trouble straight away as they try and work out how to unravel the mystery without exposing their infidelity. Actually, that's just the very start of their troubles, and I won't reveal any more because I think that everybody should watch this film with as little prior knowledge as possible, and hopefully enjoy it as much as I did.

There are about eight billion giallos out there, and thanks to companies like Media Blasters, we get to see great versions of ones we've seen before and ones that never were available in the U.S. before. Solange I had never seen until recently, but I'd say this is one of the better giallo films to come out among the many we've seen in the last few years. While I haven't seen a giallo I though was crappy and not worth the time, some were a little more uninteresting than others. Solange is a pretty cool murder mystery involving a killer who's modus operandi involves stabbing schoolgirls in their.....elbows. That's it, their elbows. A small band of schoolgirls all hide a secret that puts them in the killer's crosshairs, and the secret involves a girl names Solange(obviously). Italian hunkster Fabio Testi is a teacher who digs chicks in uniform....schoolgirl uniforms that is. He's the one trying to solve the case, and we all know Fabio is just the guy for this kind of thing. Why don't you check it out? I can't think of a reason for you not to, especially if you dig giallo films, heartbreaking romances or Death Wish 4: The Crackdown.

This well-crafted 1971 giallo spends more attention on characterization and police procedure than on actual thrills but don't let that deter you. Yes, the gore is minimal but the murders are disturbing and the plot twists pile up to a conclusion that answers the title question in a gripping, beautifully filmed fashion.
The scope photography is excellent and the widescreen transfer is sharp, colorful and accurately framed. The mono audio track is a bit 'hissy' but it's more than passable for such an incredibly rare film. Extras are on the slim side with a handful of trailers and nice display of artwork and stills over Ennio Morricone's haunting theme.
If you're a fan of the film or the genre then this disc is a definite buy,
