To fund the film's production, Belgian producer Eve Commenge created a company to produce Amer. Directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani required more funding outside Belgium and searched for a French co-producer. Producer François Cognard agreed to co-produce the film. The directors found that they only had one third of their original budget, but the producers let them start production regardless based on their experience of making short films for very little money.

The directors took great preparations before shooting the actors due to the film's low budget. All shots in the film were tested with digital video cameras with the two directors playing all the parts so that nothing unexpected would come up when they began filming with the other actors. The film was shot at the French Riviera and in Belgium. It took 39 days to shoot.

At Metacritic the film has received an average score of 72, based on seven reviews. The Village Voice gave the film a positive review, stating that "The pleasures of this gorgeous, clever, and visceral film are almost exclusively aesthetic" as well as "that those unmoved or alienated by the porn of pain may be left flopping as nervelessly as one of the movie’s severed limbs." The Los Angeles Times referred to the film as "Consistently outrageous and relentlessly surreal, the Belgian film is, intentionally or not, frequently funny; it's also compelling and distinctive." Empire gave the film three out of five stars, recommending it for fans of Dario Argento.
