Polanski directed and cowrote the screenplay with Gérard Brach and John Brownjohn. While the novel is set in England, it was filmed in France due to Polanski's legal situation. Nastassia Kinski, Peter Firth, and Leigh Lawson starred, among others, and the film was nominated for numerous awards, won three of the six Academy Award nominations, along with seven others in various award competitions world-wide. The film was distributed in Europe nearly a year prior to its Dec. 1980 U.S. release.
