"Knife in the Water"
Directed by Roman Polanski
This is Polanski's debut feature film about
weekend spent by three people aboard a yacht. A young man,
who joins a couple as a hitchhiker, gradually inserts himself uncomfortably into their
lives, and in a brilliant depiction of inter-personal tensions, tests their
marriage. Superbly crafted, "Knife in the Water" brought Polanski to the
attention of critics, won him a cover on Time and earned him his
first Oscar« nomination. "A brilliant piece of cinematic
storytelling and a must-see movie." - Leonard Maltin. "Wry
humor, a thread of suspense, a dash of ugly and coruscating evil." - The
New York Times. "Flawless! A brilliantly
coherent crossword puzzle." - Newsweek. Winner of the International Film Critics Award from the Venice
International Film Festival. With Leon Niemczyk, Jolanta Umecka, and
Zycmunt Malanowicz. Remastered with translation by Roman Polanski. Polish
with English subtitles. Black and white.
