English Original Version Subtitled in French + introduction

Landscape Suicide examines the relationship between physical and psychological landscapes through a documentary reconstruction of two murder cases, one committed by a Californian teenager, Bernadette Protti, the other, by a Wisconsin man, Ed Gein, who inspired Hitchcock’s character, Norman Bates in Psycho. The killers’ roles are played by two actors, who read their statement/confession to the police.
