But it won't stop there. The Cellist must finish his work. Diana, helped by Chin, an orphaned Chinese boy, can only try to escape. The cat and mouse game has just begun...
"Only those immune to the puerile charm of attack dogs, eclipses and water snakes will fail to enjoy “Dark Glasses” even a little." (Variety)
"Rather than copy the style of the giallo films from the 1970s and 1980s that made him famous, his "Dark Glasses" finds ingenious ways to retain the core of the giallo while adapting to our current times." (The Playlist)
