RO­MAN POLAN­SKI: ODD MAN OUT

ABC2, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

MA­RINA Zen­ovich’s fol­low- up to the ac­claimed Ro­man Polan­ski: Wanted and De­sired comes off as an elab­o­rate at­tempt to jus­tify her ear­lier work in the light of new de­vel­op­ments. While it gets too bogged down in the de­tails to present a com­pelling ar­gu­ment, it does con­tain some fas­ci­nat­ing mo­ments, in­clud­ing an in­ter­view with Sa­man­tha Geimer, the 13- year- old at the cen­tre of the rape case against Polan­ski in 1977. But with the pub­lic al­ready firm in their views as to whether he is a per­se­cuted ge­nius or child molester, this doc­u­men­tary seems un­likely to con­vince any­one to switch sides.
