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

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.
