Join us for Roman Polanski’s black comedy about a couple terrorised by gangsters, starring Donald Pleasence.
Shades of Beckett in the absurdist wit applied to the fraught encounter of an odd couple (Pleasance and Dorléac) and the gangsters on the run who turn up at their private island love-nest. Humiliation, betrayal and destruction inevitably follow, and Polanski, while relishing the dramatic potential of the setting, observes the perverse, sometimes surreal altercations with beadily comic glee.
You're recommended to book your ticket in advance from the BFI Box Office - we're going to the 3.45pm screening
