The promo photo for this film is two shots after this one. I'm not arguing. Knife in the Water is full of great angles but the sexual/violent/paternal tension here between Malanowicz and Niemczyk is almost hard to watch. Then it's all perfectly, absurdly diffused by the girl playing with a giant inflatable alligator in the background.
It also sounds amazing. The irritating way she's yells could almost have a musical meter.
I am adding Zygmunt Malanowicz to my list of people I have to try to sleep with when I go back in time.
