Sometimes it's impossible to separate an auteur's art from his scandalous life (Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate was murdered by the Manson family; in 1977 he had to flee the US due to charges of rape of a minor that are still pending). In the case of Polanski, his salacious personal life heightens the dark sexiness pervading many of his moody, dark-ish movies. Bitter Moon stars Hugh Grant, Kristin Scott Thomas and Emmanuelle Seigner, Polanski's real-life wife, who is 33 years younger than her legendary husband. It tells the tale of a steamy affair of utter sexual obsession which turns into bitter hatred — told in flashback on an ocean liner.
