With Donald Sutherland, Julie Christie
Directed by Nicolas Roeg

This intense drama from the man who gave us pop-starring flicks like Performance (Mick Jagger) and The Man Who Fell To Earth (David Bowie), Roeg sculpted an atmospheric thriller of a couple trying to come to terms with the drowning death of their daughter. The refusal to accept this and partly feeling responsible, visions of the red coat girl in the streets of Venice become more vivid, seeming more than hallucinations. A hectic final shocker moment makes it even more worth the while.
