Sobre l'autor

The French-born Polish actor and director Roman Polanski survived one of the darkest events of the twentieth century, the Holocaust. At the age of 8, he was interned in a German concentration camp, where his mother died. He later attended the Polish Film School and, with his film noir Knife in the mostra'n més Water (1962), helped establish the reputation of Polish cinema abroad. Polanski's vision is of an unstable world of violence, sexual frustration, unconscious impulses, and destructive psychoses. Repulsion (1965), his first feature in the West, and the chilling Rosemary's Baby (1968), about satanic possession in New York City, marked him as a filmmaker who was unafraid to confront evil. He was forced to confront evil in his personal life once again when his wife, Sharon Tate, was brutally murdered in 1969 by the satanic Charles Manson cult in one of California's most sensational slayings. The horror of this experience informs his filmed version of Shakespeare's Macbeth (1972). Of his later films, Chinatown (1974), the story of a private investigator's discovery of twisted relationships in the wealthy family that has hired him, was well received, as was Tess (1981), Polanski's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

Considering she was so inexperienced at the time of filming, Kinski does well enough as the tragic heroine, although at times a little more emotion might have been good. She always preserves a feeling of apartness and difference from her peers, which is important. Generally able support from the rest of the cast, including a small role for Suzanna Hamilton as Izzy, the lovelorn milkmaid whom Angel ought to have married. Peter Firth makes a believable Angel Clare, torn apart by conflicting beliefs. All too obvious (especially from the buildings) that the film was made in France rather than England for legal reasons, but the rural atmosphere is still captured beautifully. Costuming is quietly authentic.… (més)
