Aro Recommended Knife in the Water


Poland 1962, 94 minutes, B/W
Dir. Roman Polanski
In Polish with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Suspense/Crime, Classics / Psycho

Aroview: The old adage 'three is a crowd' is chillingly played out in Polanski's directing debut about a couple's troubled yachting weekend with a hitch-hiker. The simple premise is milked for all the tension it's worth.
