If you love psychological ghost stories like "The Haunting of Hill House," you will enjoy this classic horror film based on a story by Daphne Du Maurier and set in a Venice like you have never seen it before -- desolate and haunted. A couple loses a child -- and then even stranger things happen. You should also invest in the Criterion Blu-Ray. I saw this film on an older DVD release and the murky transfer ruined the experience. All the actors are first-rate, and the short film that features the director Nicolas Roeg on the Criterion edition is wonderful for illuminating some of the dark corners of the film while suggesting that the film itself was fated to be made.

This is a truly artistic work of the macabre, from ''Walkabout'' director Nicholas Roeg. The story is of a couple, John and Laura Baxter (played by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie), grieving over the accidental drowning of their small daughter. They move to Venice, where John works on the restoration of a church. The couple meet two sisters in a cafe, one blind and a psychic, who tells them their daughter is ''happy'' in her new world. Laura is comforted by this, but John scoffs, but is haunted by visions of a small figure darting around the canals, dressed in the same red rain coat his daughter used to wear.... The backdrop of Venice is not shown romantically here. It is crumbling and old in the dead of winter, depressing and emotionally draining and perfectly suits this film. There is a fantastic use of colour,(black and red notably) and good shock moments, including jerkey, quick images. There is also an equisite and well crafted love scene, one of the most famous in film history, which Donald Sutherland supposedly said was ''Absolutley horrible to shoot.'' The chilling finale, fine acting and and beautiful filming make this an ingenious erotic, supernatural thriller, that is highly understated today. All members are at their peak in this picture and it is truly emotionally affecting. While it is not a frightening as it used to be, it is still a masterpiece.
