Tess


1979       Nastassia Kinski

One of the year's most acclaimed films, Roman Polanski's Tess, based on "Tess of the d'Urbervilles", Thomas Hardy's lamed novel of a woman who becomes a victim of her own provocative beauty, opened in . The Columbia Pictures release stars the ravishing Nastassia Kinski in the title role, Peter Firth as the young farmer who marries and abandons her, and Leigh Lawson as the suave playboy who seduces her.

Produced by Claude Bern and directed by Polanski from a screenplay he co-wrote with Gerard Brach and John Brown-john, Tess has won exceptional praise for its rich and beautiful images, and has already been awarded some of the film industry's major accolades.

Among them are the Los Angeles Film Critics "Best Director" award to Roman Polanski, two Golden Globe Awards from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Los Angeles and New York Film Critics Association's "Best Cinematography" awards to the late Geoffrey Unsworth and Ghislain Cloquet, the designation as "One of' the Year's Best Films" from the National Board of Review and the

selection of Tess as "The Year's Best Film" by the Los Angeles Times.

Adhering to Hardy's classic tale, the film follows young Tess from the moment her poverty-stricken father discovers that he is of noble descent and sends her to live with her aristocratic "cousins," through a climactic act of vengeance in a seaside resort.

Enhancing the picture's theme is the haunting beauty of actress Kinski, daughter of one of Europe's most famous actors, Klaus Kinski. Recently described by Newsweek as "a young Ingrid Bergman" for her radiant sexuality, Kinski's starring debut as Tess brought her the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globe as New Female Star of the Year.

Filmed on location in France and England, Tess is rated PG by the MPAA.
