The Academy Award® nominated Knife in the Water (Noz W Wodzie) is the debut feature film from Academy Award® winning director Roman Polanski and the only feature he made in his
native Poland.

A vain sports reporter (Leon Niemczyk) and his beautiful but frustrated wife are on their way to the lake, for a days sailing, when they nearly run over a young hitch-hiker (Zygmunt Malanowicz). The couple invite the hitch-hiker to join them on their boat which triggers a battle of wits between the two men as they jostle for superiority. But will the hitch hikers obession with his knife cause the tension to end in tragedy...

Filmed in black and white and with a cast of three, Knife in the Water is the controversial, daring masterpiece that unleashed the genius of Roman Polanski upon the world. The film is presented here with a brand new HD transfer which allows you to experience it exactly as the director intended.
