Primal fear



My favourite scene in "La ragazza che sapeva troppo", that Mario Bava obviously named after Hitchcock's famous "Man who knew too much".
Nora Davis is alone in a Rome flat, close to the place where she thinks she saw a murder at the very beginning of the film.
It's dark, it's windy and the windows of the flat are turned into a scary Chinese shadows theatre.

Back to primal, childish fears, where it's your imagination which scares you.
Nothing's happening just now. But it's coming.


Know more about "The girl who knew too much" by reading Michael McKenzie's very interesting review here, and the article on "The Mario Bava web page".
