Don't Look Now is an eerie 1973 thriller from acclaimed director Nicolas Roeg. It is based on a short story by Daphne Du Maurier. In rural England, a little girl in a red raincoat falls into a pond and drowns. A few months later her parents (Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland) are in Venice, where John, the husband, is supervising the restoration of a medieval church. They meet two elderly sisters (Hilary Mason and Clelia Matania), one of whom is blind but claims to have second sight. Laura, John's wife, believes her; John does not. But John has strange, momentary premonitions which he doesn't even recognise, and Laura is told that he, too, has the gift without knowing it - and also that he is in the greatest danger. Then he sees what seems to be a child in a red raincoat...

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The country home of the Baxter family seen at the beginning of the film was actually the house of David Tree, the actor who plays the headmaster. Tree had been a busy actor in films and plays in London before the Second World War, but, during war service, had sustained injuries (including the loss of an arm) which led him to retire from acting. Director Nicolas Roeg, wanting to use his house as a location, also persuaded him to return to acting briefly for this film. He never acted in a film again, however.
