Don't Look Now (Nicolas Roeg, UK /Italy, 1973)

It’s a ghost story; it’s a meditation on time, memory and the poignancy of married love. And it’s a masterpiece.
— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Screened in tribute to Nicolas Roeg (1928 - 2018)

Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie are John and Laura Baxter: a married couple, numb with grief following the recent death of their young daughter in a drowning accident. Accepting a commission to restore a church, they travel to Venice where they encounter two elderly sisters, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant with a warning from beyond... Based on the short story by Daphne Du Maurier, and with its fractured editing and the beautifully-shot shabbiness of decaying Venice, Don’t Look Now is as gripping as it moving: a truly adult horror-film and masterpiece of the uncanny.
