Dario Argento's Opera could be considered one of the last truly great films in the maestro's canon. It sets itself apart from the rest by showcasing some of the most innovative, breathtaking cinematography I've ever seen in a film. Period. Argento and first-time collaborator Ronnie Taylor really let loose and run wild with the visuals. POV shots abound, including crow-vision and sink drain-vision ... read more

In "Opera", all gimmicky and even gruesome of Giallo topics are more than present. In absurd script saves a bit that Dario Argento has a way of making very effective and imaginative in their own way. With its narrative ups and downs, its loose interpretation (aaahhh! my dear Cristina Marsillach...) and its amazing development and resolution, the film can be seen with more pain than glory.

“Dario Argento's Opera could be considered one of the last truly great films in the maestro's canon. It sets itself apart from the rest by showcasing some of the most innovative, breathtaking cinematography I've ever seen in a film. Period. Argento and first-time collaborator Ronnie Taylor really let loose and run wild with the visuals. POV shots abound, including crow-vision and sink drain-vision to name a few. The camera glides and swoops through the air like an apparition, adding to the creepy feel of the proceedings. The "needles under the eyelids" concept is used to great effect, not since A Clockwork Orange has this form of torture been so terrifying. Opera is not as bloody nor as scary as previous Argento films, it drags in certain parts and none of the characters are very likeable o” read more

"Kun Verdin Macbeth-oopperan päälaulaja juoksee harjoituksista raivoissaan suoraan auton alle, tarjoutuu nuorelle Bettylle (Cristina Marsillach) elämänsä tilaisuus kyseisen roolin muodossa. Yleisö villiintyykin Bettyn suorituksesta, mutta tuoreella tähtösellä on tunne kuin kaikki ei olisi kohdallaan... ja mitenpä voisikaan, kun eräs oopperan työntekijä tulee murhatuksi brutaalisti kesken ensi-illan. Pian sadistinen, mustan naamion taakse piiloutunut murhaaja alkaa riivaamaan Bettyä "

"En voi antaa tälle kahta tähteä enempää vaikka kuinka tekisi mieli. Opera on varmasti Argenton visuaalisesti komein elokuva, ja se on paljon sanottu Deep Redin ja Infernon ohjaajalta. Mutta ei saatana mitä skeidaa tää juoni oli. Minua ei yleensä haittaa, että henkilöt tekevät vammaisia juttuja kauhuelokuvissa koska hei, se kuuluu asiaan, mutta kun jokainen hahmo tekee niitä jokaisessa kohtauksessa joka minuutti niin se alkaa olla liian päällekäyvää. Murhaajan giallotrauma on my"

"Pitkähkön tauon jälkeen piristävästi vähän Argentoa. Operasta löytyy paljon hyvän Dario-giallon merkkejä: sympattinen naispääosa, ovelia kuvakulmia ja kamerakikkailuja sekä mustat nahkahanskat. Elokuvassa mukaillaan Shakespearen Macbeth-näytelmää, tai itseasiassa legendaa siitä kuinka se tuottaa onnettomuutta tekijöilleen. Konspeti toimii perushyvänä lähtökohtana puukkohipalle ja roiskeen taso onkin lopulta varsin tyydyttävää. Suurin miinus tulee lopetuksesta, joka on Ar"

"When it comes to Argento this one is usually ranked below Suspiria, Deep Red and Tenebre but it's my favorite when it comes to that crazy Italian bastard. I mean the thing is one of the most visually impressive films I've ever witnessed. Stylized giallo horror at its lurid best. "
