NON-HOLLYWOOD

Knife In The Water [1962]

Roman Polanski’s first ever  movie as a director. I woulnd’t call it a masterpiece, but it’s a tense movie,  well directed and certainly worth mentioning. Polanski improved over the years, but any fan of his work should definitely check this one out.

Fun fact: ” After the movie became known in US, Polanski was given a proposal to remake the film in English with some known Hollywood actors (rumors talk about Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor), but he turned it down as he didn’t want to “repeat himself”.
