Suspiria,1977, directed by Dario Argento

and

Riyoko Ikeda, Oniisama e… (Brother, dear brother…/(おにいさまへ…)


Many years ago, when I saw Suspiria for the first time, I was very impressed by this movie. Immediately I was struck by the resemblance to Oniisama e…. But, Oniisama e… was drawn in 1975, so it wasn’t influenced by Argento.
In these two works, we find common ideas and themes : school, female community, uneasiness, blood…
The two heroines could be sisters : there are both novices who discover a new universe where the outside world hardly exists and whose hair is almost identical !
Architecture plays an important role. The direction (of the movie) and layout (of the manga pages) create disturbing atmosphere… and more and more… :D
