en Few major American directors with 40-year careers are as far outside of the cinephile canon circa 2017 as Joseph Losey. The maker of almost three dozen features between the mid-1940s and the mid-1980s—his career had roughly the span of John Huston’s—Losey worked with everyone from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to Noel Coward, Tom Stoppard, and Jeanne Moreau. He always felt more like a European director, and after he moved abroad, his reputation reached its apex with three films he made from Harold Pinter scripts.
Accident may be the most characteristic merging of their respective styles—Losey’s slightly mannered, detached compositional elegance and Pinter’s gnomic ferocity. It’s a puzzle box of a movie, one that begins with an Oxford don (SIR DIRK BOGARDE) hearing, and then discovering, a grisly car wreck outside his home. From there, the movie unfolds in a series of flashbacks presented with so little explanation, at least for the time, that one of the film’s costars, Stanley Baker, complained that three-quarters of Accident’s audience couldn’t understand what was happening when. What emerges is a story of sexual pursuit in triplicate, as a young Austrian woman ( Jacqueline Sassard, a beautiful, rather impassive actress who left the business a year after this movie) becomes a locus of obsession for Bogarde, for his student (Michael York), and for his wolfish buddy (Baker). filmcomment

nl Het ingewikkeld, en provocerend scenario van Harold Pinter maakt gebruik van een verhaal (over een professor uit Oxford die verliefd wordt op een studente) dat slechts als basis dient voor een onderzoek naar denken en handelen van de personages. Uitdagende film die werkt met vele niveaus; alle spelers uitstekend, inclusief Michael York in zijn eerste grote rol. Zoals steeds bij Joseph Losey en Harold Pinter wordt niets expliciet gemaakt, maar de beelden tintelen van de implicaties en de onderhuidse spanningen door een ijzersterke cast.

fr Sorti en 1967, Accident est la deuxième collaboration entre le réalisateur Joseph Losey et l'écrivain Harold Pinter après The Servant (1963). Adapté d'un roman de Nicolas Mosley, Accident se situe à Oxford, dans le milieu élitiste et clos d'universitaires sclérosés dans leurs certitudes, leurs hypocrisies, leurs non-dits.
