Details

Superb restoration of Roman Polanski's acclaimed 1979 adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic Tess of the d'Urbervilles. This is the first time that Tess has been available in High Definition anywhere in the world.

Nastassia Kinski stars as Tess, a strong-willed working class girl who discovers that she has title connections by way of her old aristocratic surname and who is raped by her wealthy cousin, whose right to the family title may not be as strong as he claims.

Filmed in Brittany, this multi-award-winning epic was the most expensive French film of its time, and features at its heart an unforgettable, career-defining performance by the 17-year-old Kinski. Also stars Peter Firth (Equus, Spooks) and Leigh Lawson.
