“How many times do I have to tell you? Ursula Andress belongs with the transvestites not the perverts.” A fine murder mystery from Argento.
L’ Uccello dalle Piume di Cristallo, also known under the title The Bird with the Crystal Plumage to English speaking audiences, is set in Italy where a writer named Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante) witnesses a murder attempt in an art gallery while walking past it late one night. A figure dressed in black manages to escape & leaves Monica Ranieri (Eva Renzi), the co-owner of the gallery, staggering around in pain having been stabbed in the stomach. However she is alive & Inspector Morosini (Enrico Maria Salerno) is on the case, it comes to light that Monica is the latest victim of a serial killer who has killed several young women recently. Morosini questions Sam who has a strange feeling about what he saw, almost as if something was wrong & just didn’t fit properly but Sam is unable to remember what. That same night an attempt is made on Sam’s life so together with his girlfriend Julia (Suzy Kendall) he is drawn into the case in a bid to piece the puzzle together & identify the killer before they become their latest victims…

This Italian West German co-production was written & directed by Dario Argento who would go on to produce a number of films of this type as well as other’s in the horror genre. I didn’t think L’ Uccello dalle Piume di Cristallo is Argento’s best, I prefer both Deep Red (1975) & Tenebre (1982) which show his style & visual flair off better than this, but on a basic story level I can’t really complain. The script is pretty absorbing & the mystery draws you in to the film & it’s character’s. There isn’t a great deal of exploitation & the murders are minimal but when the killers motives are revealed it actually all makes sense for a change & is sort of plausible. The twists & turns work well & I doubt many will guess the killers identity, the climax is particularly good as it reveals it’s twist, explains everything & is well thought out. There are a few silly plot points that didn’t work for me, that bird for instance, I’m sorry but there’s no way someone could tell that a seemingly random background noise is that of a bird that only lives in one place on Earth. Since the bird was held captive in a zoo what about all the other animal noises that would have been heard? What about people talking in the background, cars driving past the killers window & the like, I mean was the whole of the city silent except for that one bird? Surely if the recorder picked up the sound of the bird so clearly it would have picked up & recorded other ambient sounds, right? I also don’t understand why the killer just didn’t kill Sam? Why try to warn him off the case? I mean the killer isn’t exactly scared of killing someone are they? Why hire an assassin to kill him, & why hire an assassin who can’t even shoot straight? Overall I liked the film & these gripes I have with the story are minor when put into context, a good solid murder mystery. As with most films like this I doubt many will want to see it again as once you know it’s twists & turns that’s pretty much everything the film has to offer & it provides little in the way of interest beyond that.

Director Argento has developed a reputation for visually stylish films & I was a bit disappointed that L’ Uccello dalle Piume di Cristallo wasn’t quite as extravagant as some of his other later films, it still has a nice style & is very well filmed throughout with a nice eye for detail but the colour schemes, elaborate camera shots & angles are not quite present here. The set-pieces & gore are somewhat retrained, there’s a scene in a lift when someone is slashed with a razor & a woman has her underwear cut off & then slashed to death in bed but thats about as gory as it gets.

With a supposed budget of about $500,000 the film is very well made & you can definitely see some of Argento’s style here that he would later use to great effect. The acting is OK but since the film is dubbed into English it’s hard tell what the original performances were like.

L’ Uccello dalle Piume di Cristallo is a fine murder mystery, it’s very watchable & is an excellent starter for anyone who wants to sample the genre of the Italian ‘Giallo’ to which this belongs. There are a few lapses in logic but not as many as some other’s in the genre, definitely worth a watch.
