"Solange" is no different, but adds a startling degree of social relevance. Made in 1971, "Solange" tackles the abortion legalization issue 2 years before Roe v. Wade (a similar horror film examination of abortion is 1974's "Black Christmas").
This is one of the finest of the giallo genre.
The blood and gore are very minimal, though the killer's methods are positively disgusting.
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.

To keep it short, it is a nicely photographed, well constructed film, with good performances that are only slightly marred by dubbed dialogue. The murder sequences are effective without fetishizing (too much) the gruesome details and revelling in grotesquerie, as do many films from the Italian horror scene. As for the DVD itself, the image quality is good, all things considered, and although there is little in the way of extras (apart from some trailers)there is a slick collector's booklet included. While by no means a flawless film, What Have You Done to Solange? does rank up there with other top notch giallo/horror films like Mario Bava's "Blood and Black Lace" and Dario Argento's "Deep Red." That being said, Solange is also a singular effort which should please both fans of this genre of film, and those who are merely curious. Check it out!
