Franco (George Lazenby) is a successful sculptor in Venice whose life is thrown out of balance when one day his daughter (Nicoletta Elmi) doesn't come home from playing outside, and is later found floating in a canal, brutally murdered, with the only clue being she was last seen with a woman dressed like a picture book granny. The police though seems top show little interest in solving the crime, which is why he, ridden by guilt, decides to take matters into his own hands and starts to investigate, encouraged only by his estranged wife (Anita Strindberg), who actually feels drawn back to him by what has happened, and a befriended journalist (Piero Vida), who provides him with many a clue - like one that takes him to France where a similar murder has happened ... a murder that somehow shows the involvement of many of Franco's acquaintances, like his art dealer Serafian (Adolfo Celi), attorney Bonaiuti (José Quaglio), and even the local priest, Father James (Alessandro Haber) - and each of them seems to have something to hide, though it's unlikely that they're all involved in the murder. Eventually, Ginevra (Dominique Boschero), a friend of Franco's and Serafian's maybe girlfriend, promises Franco some evidence, but is murdered only moments before the two can meet. And more and more people die along the way, convincing Franco he's coming closer and closer to the truth - but the closer he gets, the more dangerous the thing becomes, not only for him but also for those he loves ...

 

Now I'll freely admit, narratively Who Saw Her Die? is a convoluted mess, that's confusing even for a giallo - a genre that didn't always rely too much on logic and stringency. But that said, it's still a very strong genre entry, as what it might be lacking storywise it makes up with wonderful camerawork - rarely has Venice been captured on film more breathtakingly than here - and setpieces that keep the audiences on the edges of their seats almost constantly, combining its excellent score with superb editing and general excitement. Now add to that a very solid cast, and you've got yourself a very cool movie. Sure, you'll have to ignore the plot, but if you can it's a feast of a giallo!
