A young musician late at night in a ridiculous scuffle accidentally stabbed a strange man with his own knife.

Review 4K Movie

A musician accidentally finds himself in an empty opera house. Soon there is a murder. But this is only the beginning. Step by step, learning about the character's private life, we experience with him the horror of the invasion of privacy and the fear of unjust accusation.

In creating such truly Hitchcockian accents, Dario Argento adheres to a very original style of his own. The torn editing, the constant miscommunications, the lack of a clear narrative and sequence of the story - adds to the colors of the film. At the same time, some scenes are brilliantly done.

Full of irony scene of visiting the heroes of the film exhibition of ritual services. Meaningful and far from ambiguous seems shot when the client is offered to try on a coffin.

The character of a private detective, played by Jean-Pierre Mariel, is wonderfully developed. His refined Frenchman just breaks the mold of what a detective should be. Anyone familiar with the movies, immediately notice the unconcealed banter directed at Sam Spade (Bogart's character from The Maltese Falcon).

As far as Jean-Pierre Mariel is concerned, Bud Spencer should also be mentioned. His small role as a brutal fellow protagonist - was very much to the point in this picture.

And the scene with the revelation of the four flies indicated in the title will be quite unexpected, and at the expense of it, it acquires additional importance.

Issues of home invasion and blackmail are also accurately worked out. The very cool relationship between the spouses, whose family life is undergoing a very difficult examination reminds me very much of David Lynch's Lost highway.

In general I had the impression while watching The Four Flies that the characters from Lost Highway were just about to appear, that David Bowie's music was playing and that there were shots of driving fast on the highway at night.

In fact, 'Four Flies...' was not only quoted by Lynch afterwards. They were quoted by Argento himself (in The Opera), quoted by Ruggero Deodato (In A House on the Edge of the Park), quoted by Bertrand Blier (in Cold Snacks), and this is by no means a complete list.

The lead performers should be noted as well. Mimsy Farmer and Michael Brandon played the young couple beautifully. By the way, I have noticed more than once that Brandon is a very, very strong actor.

Of course, I overrated it by a point or a half. But it is only because of my sympathy for the work of Dario Argento. Well, and the paranoid atmosphere created by the director in 'Four Flies...', together with the excellent tattered editing, creates an effect of tension.

Bottom line: this film is far from a masterpiece. In fact, only taking the first steps of his career, Dario Argento will showcase his talent in all its greatness. There will be a lot of understatement in this film, there will be losses of pace. But in spite of that Argento has made an original, bright and expressive film. A movie worth watching if you like thrillers
