Ambitious but subtle, dinamic but with the photographic quality of a tableau vivant. Nature and human pride or nature and history, are the main forces. I can´t resist to see in the ending in Stonehenge, the story of mankind embracing these two tragic, idiot and wonderful lovers

" What I like about it: a) Visual beauty; b) Good lead actress - Nastassja (or so I think) was the right choice to interpret charming and coy Tess. On the other hand, I didn't like her love interests. Actually, I found that relationship between Tess and Angel lacks of chemistry, so it wasn't convincing to me. And, most important, whole movie was too, too slow."

"21.8. I usually hate these kind of movies but Tess is actually highly watchable period chick flick. Themes of the story are powerful and movie feels like a Polanskin's apology for his behavior (all that raping, you know). Tess is wonderful charachter and I actually love Nastassja Kinski in this one (also in Cat People). "

A Complete review of Roman Polanski's work (20 movies items)

" Cast : Nastassja Kinski What was it about? A young strong-willed peasant girl, becomes the affection of two men, in the end tragically falling into the arms of one. My two cents: It was Polanski's first film since his arrest for rape in 1977 and it is actually rather surprising that he managed to make another movie so soon after such a scandal. Anyway, it was back then the most expensive movie made in France and it proved to be a financial success and was well received by both cr"

"15.1. Kivaa pukuruamaa, joka on kuvattu todella komeasti. Kolmen tunnin kesto ei vaikuta yhtään liian pitkältä, ja lisäkesto olisi kelvannut, koska nyt tapahtumat hyppivät välillä hyvinkin pitkiä aikoja ilman mitään kunnollista syytä. Tämä luultavasti johtuu lähdeteoksesta, mutta ei toimi elokuvan kannalta ollenkaan edukseen. Suomi-DVD:ssä jostain syystä kuva muuttui suttuiseksi paskaksi hieman ennen puoliväliä. Se rokotti katselukokemuksesta jonkin verran."

""Have they come for me?" Directed by: Roman Polanski Starring: Nastassja Kinski, Peter Firth, Leigh Lawson Rating: 7/10 Say what you want about Roman Polanski, but you can't deny that he is competent director. "Tess" is a depressive tragedy with a strong and cute performance by Nastassja Kinski. It is running a bit long, but there is enough melodrama to satisfy. "
