Following the recent Polanski Retrospective at the NFT, we present new prints of two classics from the master of cinematic menace.

A testy older man and his young wife pick up a hitch-hiker on their yachting weekend. Tensions arise as the two men engage in competition for the woman's approval, the power games inevitably getting out of hand.

A rare opportunity to see a masterful debut film.

Nominated Best Foreign Language Film - 1964 Oscars/BAFTAS
