'All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.' is what Jean-Luc Godard said about cinema. Today the gun and girl may be replaced by special effects.Dario Argento's film 'The Stendhal Syndrome' from 1996 was the first Italian film to use computer-generated imagery. Here the film is rendered through every possible special effect in a movie editing software. About 90 effects are applied in alphabetical order.
