Roman Polanski’s brilliant debut derives a wealth of drama and insights from the simplest situation: a couple are joined by a young hitchhiker on their yacht for a sailing weekend. Absurd male rivalries arise, and events threaten to turn nasty. Krzysztof Komeda’s Coltrane-like jazz evokes both the moments of exhilaratingly speedy freedom and the moody doldrums.
