of all the giallos i've seen in my life, this is by far my personal favorite & i've seen it nearly five times since purchasing on 01/01/04. what way to start the new year! solange has all the trappings of a wonderful classic giallo without indulging us into the graphic & extreme gore as many of the latter giallos would do. however, there is a great deal of suspense & mystery to draw you in & keep you involved til the very last scene. solange could've very well been a mainstream pyschological thriller with a bit of romantic undertone with the themes & atmosphere at hand but works well no matter genre it's filed under. the bottom line is we have gone way too long without this film & shreik show dvd has done a helluva job in presenting a crystal clear version of the classic on dvd for the entire world to see. there isn't much avaialable here in the line of extras but you do get some trailers including the original theatrical trailer for solange & there is a nice press kit included in the pack. without doubt, i feel like i got my money's worth as i usually feel when i've purchased the jean rollin films on shriek show. the story is quite complex & often eerie or seductive much like a pulp fiction paperback novel. the acting is nearly brilliant here & i can't possibly imagine any others actors who would've done a better job given the material involved. the film opens up with a creepy but cool montage of some some catholic school girls riding their bicycles across the screen in an almost blood-red lighting which basically sets us up for the chilling events which will take place in the next 104 minutes. unlike slasher films, solange offers more plot which thickens each & every second. after seeing this film, you may literally cower everytime you see a priest. GREAT FILM! i will watch this one from time to time & recommend this to everyone who loves thriller dillers or very classy horror films.
