"I was intrigued to see how Polanski would film four characters on a single set and retain my interest. I was even more intrigued when I discovered it was shot in widescreen. In the event it worked very well and It's a tribute to how well Polanski was taught at the Lodz Film School all those years ago. It helped to have four splendid actors bouncing off one another. The film was very funny but often quite painful to watch as alliances shifted and the hitherto unspoken tensions between the characters were revealed. The only scene I felt ambivalent about was the last one where the two boys were seen to make up. I'm sure that's how it would have happened but not convinv=ced we needed to see it. Others may well feel very diferently about it."
