Bitter Moon


Director Roman Polanski once again employed his wife Emmanuelle Seigner and cast her as a waitress in Paris whom an American writer (Peter Coyote) has a kinky affair with, something that spells disaster for both; the story is subsequently retold to a shocked, prim couple. Time flies when you’re watching this film because it is unpredictable, well told and its sex is a fascinating exercise in tawdry taste. Plenty of humiliation, sadism and perverted games, but not much depth. Coyote is brilliant however as the self-absorbed, bitter man in the wheelchair. 

1992-Britain-France. 139 min. Color. Produced and directed by Roman Polanski. Screenplay: Roman Polanski, Gérard Brach, John Brownjohn. Novel: Pascal Bruckner.
