Directed by Roman Polanski • 1957 • Poland
The following is the first complete student short Roman Polanski made at the State Film School in Lodz, Poland. A story told in almost total darkness and in one room, the film introduces themes the director has revisited throughout his career.
In his autobiography, director Roman Polanski writes that the theme of TEETH SMILE was set for him by a supervisor at film school. The film follows a peeping tom as he looks through a bathroom window.
