More Movie Taglines:
- A psychic thriller.
- Pass the warning.
- Laura Baxter: One of your children has posed a curious question: if the world is round, why is a frozen lake flat? John Baxter: That's a good question. Laura Baxter: [flipping through book] Ah, here it says that Lake Ontario curves more than 3 degrees from its Eastern end to its Western end. So frozen water really isn't flat. John Baxter: Nothing is what it seems.
Inspector Longhi: The skill of police artists is to make the living appear dead.
Heather: Fetch him back! Let him not go!
Laura Baxter: This one who's blind. She's the one that can see.
- The famous sex scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie was a last minute on-set idea from director Nicolas Roeg who felt that otherwise the film would have too many scenes of the couple arguing. Most of the scenes around it are improvised.
Renato Scarpa who plays inspector Longhi didn't speak any English. He just read the lines he'd been given without knowing what they meant, which added to the sinister quality of his character.
Writer Allan Scott was pleased to see a bottle of The Macallan (of which company he was the deputy chairman) beside the bed in the big sex scene.
Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie met for the first time on the set of this film. The first scene they had to shoot was the sex scene, as Roeg wanted to "get it out of the way" and then move on to the "bone" of the matter. Christie was terrified.
Clips from this film (along with others directed by Nicolas Roeg) appear in Big Audio Dynamite's 'E=MC2' video (1986).
