The Power of Suggestion

Intriguing and well edited, 1973's 'Don't Look Now' is propelled by a story that works around the power of suggestion. Partly psychic, John Butler (Donald Sutherland) senses danger for his young daughter, but his instincts are too late to save her from an accident where she has drowned in a backyard pond. Later, moving to Venice with his wife, Laura (Julie Christie) she comes across a blind woman who says she's seen her daughter. Consulting the visionary, accidents come to roost, but John can't get a hold on what it means until unexpected turns take place. Fine subtle performances by Sutherland and Christie give the movie admirable depth. A mysterious mood piece with admirable ambiguity, 'Don't Look Now' is based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier (author of "The Birds").
