Set in off-season Venice, British director Nicolas Roeg’s tragedy-horror Don’t Look Now combines an acute study of grief with a supernaturally charged thriller plot, to beautiful and devastating effect. On a cold, bright autumn day in Suffolk, England, a little girl in a red mackintosh drowns in a pond – the daughter of John (Donald Sutherland) and Laura Baxter (Julie Christie). Trying to recover from the tragedy, the couple arrive in Venice, Italy, where John has been commissioned to restore a church.
Praise for Don’t Look Now has continued over the years, and the film has topped Time Out’s ‘Best British Film Of All Time’ poll twice in a row. The film is also regularly ranked as one of the top horror films of the century, and cited as an influence on many leading directors for their films, including Ben Wheatley, Danny Boyle, Lynne Ramsay, Ryan Murphy and Martin McDonagh. In recognition of his unique, uncompromising vision, Roeg was also awarded the BFI Fellowship and won the BAFTA Special Award for Outstanding Creative Contribution to Cinema in 2009.
