King, Queen, Knave

Screening on Film
Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski.
With David Niven, Gina Lollobrigida, John Moulder-Brown.
Germany/USA, 1977, 35mm, color, 94 min.

Skolimowski’s rarely screened adaptation of Nabokov’s eponymous novel offers a pitch black vision of a deceptive love triangle with a dazzling international cast led by David Niven and Gina Lollobrigida. King, Queen, Knave’s surreal slapstick energy has drawn comparisons to Frank Tashlin with its use of the absurd to propel a trenchant satire of modern manners. – HG
