Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie star in Nicolas Roeg’s brilliantly atmospheric adaptation of the short story by Daphne du Maurier. Following the death of their daughter, John and Laura Baxter travel to Venice where he is to oversee the restoration of an old church. Here they encounter a pair of elderly sisters: one of them a blind psychic who claims to have been in communication with the couple’s dead child. Whilst Laura is intrigued, John resists the idea, despite the possibility that he is having his own visions that threaten to put his life in danger.
Genuinely unsettling, DON’T LOOK NOW is widely acknowledged as perhaps Roeg’s finest film and one of the best British films ever made.
Starring Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland, Hilary Mason
