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

An average movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the damned thing. Anyway, back then, 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 huge scandal.

“Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the damned thing. Anyway, back then, 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 huge scandal. At the time, it was the most expensive movie made in France and it turned out to be a financial success and it was well received by both critics and the public. As a result, Polanski even won the César Awards for Best Picture and Best Director and the movie was even nominated for the Best picture Academy Award. Personally, I have to admit it, I didn't really like this flick very much though. I mean, sure, it was well made and the whole thing lo” read more

" 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). "
