In the Eye of the Hurricane

In the Eye of the Hurricane ★★★

Drama / giallo mystery from José María Forqué. Ruth leaves her estranged husband for another man, and travels to a coastal villa. A series of nasty accidents occur, and Ruth suspects that somebody is out to kill her. A slow burn, enjoyable, sexy and suspenseful mystery. Littered with neat twists, turns, double-crossings. The central reveal occurs fairly early on, which takes the plot into an interesting direction. The setting is gorgeous, the photography is stylish and Piero Piccioni's score is fine. Surprisingly playful in tone and approach, yet also sultry and sensual. Jean Sorel and Analía Gadé deliver solid performances. A gem.
