I´ve been watching "Taxidermia" (2006 - D: György Pálfi, DP: Gergely Pohárnok). Great, weird movie and there is a scene wich is very bright (blown out skies, few details in the highlights) and the reds and the blues are very saturated. I´d remembers me of early russian documentary films that I´ve seen on TV.

I´d like to know how you can create such a look. Is it only the stage- and costume design or did the probably push-process the film?

I´m going to attach two stills of the film. I don´t know if it´s legal, but it´s for eductaional purposes ;) (I´m still a student...)

Thanks in advance!

A lot of it is in the design. I spoke with the Costume Designer of that film recently and she said that they used a restricted palette of colors, much like in Communist nations in those times, where basically you only had one shade of yellow, one shade of red, etc...

I seem to recall that they also did a DI on this film.
