Don't Look Now

Widely regarded as one of the best and most influential British films ever produced, having been cited as a key inspiration by everyone from Ben Wheatley to Lynne Ramsay, Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now has lost none of its potency in the 46 years since its original theatrical release.

Still grieving over the accidental death of their daughter, Christine (Sharon Williams), John (Donald Sutherland) and Laura Baxter (Julie Christie) head to Venice, Italy, where John's been commissioned to restore a church. There Laura meets two sisters (Hilary Mason, Clelia Matania) who claim to be in touch with the spirit of the Baxters' daughter. Laura takes them seriously, but John scoffs until he himself catches a glimpse of what looks like Christine running through the streets of Venice.

A chilling ghost story and a poignant study of grief rolled into 150 enthralling, formally uncompromising minutes.This iconic film is making its way back into cinemas following a painstaking restoration project overseen by cinematographer Tony Richmond.
