Aro Favourite Death and the Maiden


UK / France 1994, 99 minutes
Dir. Roman Polanski
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Suspense/Crime

Topics: Stageplay.


Aroview: Polanski exacts consummate control in rendering an electrifying stageplay for the screen. The dialogue blisters, the acting transfixes, the tension simmers then boils over after married diplomatic couple (Sigourney Weaver and Stuart Wilson) are forced to interrogate a genial stranger (Ben Kingsley) who may have been her political torturer. The dark recess of the human spirit is the director's forte, but never has it been this riveting or thought-provoking.
