Evil, diabolic and passion - this film will affect you!
This film is another fine example of the genius of Polanski. True, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth long after you have seen it, but is it not what art is all about? Few will be unaffected by this film. It is an important film since it deals with important issues such as eg, the complicated relationship between a man and a woman obsessively in love, passionately clinging together in lust for each other. But how far can people go? The music by Vangelis coupled by the photo and the reflections of the sea as seen from the cabin window makes this film an addiction. Beware, it is a grabber! Coyote is diabolic! Ms Seigner can act. She is not just a pretty face not entirely hired because of her marriage with Polanski. It is not a film that makes us remember Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas, though.
