Since it is a rather obscure feature, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the damned thing but since I’m a huge fan of Roman Polanski, I was really eager to check it out.

Psycho comic thriller in attractive space (the ebb tide that isolates the fortress, excellent), Lione Stander great comic playing straight.

"When on-the-run crook Richard and his injured partner-in-crime, Albie, seek shelter in a remote castle by the sea, they find themselves confronted by the owners - George, an eccentric and weak retiree, and his oversexed wife, Teresa. Richard seizes control of the castle, but, as the criminals are pulled further into the isolated world of the strange couple, a volatile test of wills ensues. This was the 2nd English language movie from director Roman Polanski. It's an oddball effort for sure, som"
