Director: Flavio Mogherini
"A giallo without the typical giallo staples, The Pyjama Girl Case is an innovative and successful rework of the genre." – Digital Retribution
In 1970s Sydney, Inspector Thompson comes out of retirement when the charred, mutilated remains of a woman are found on a beach. Meanwhile, waitress Linda is having affairs with her husband's best friend, and with sugar daddy Professor Henry Douglas. As Linda's life spirals out of control and Inspector Thompson searches for the identity of the victim and the killer, their paths will cross with shocking consequences.
Director Flavio Mogherini teams with Oscar-winning actor Ray Milland (The Lost Weekend) for what may well be the only Australian-set giallo ever made, replete with stunning photography of the Sydney coastline. A rarely seen snapshot of both 1970s Australian culture and Italian cinema, The Pyjama Girl Case stands out for the honesty of its characters and their portrayal.
The Pyjama Girl Case is based on a real murder mystery from 1930s Sydney.
