Nóz w wodzie, 1962
"Knife in the water" is Roman Polański's first, so called, feature film - i.e. people actually went to the cinema and paid to see it. It was made in 1962 and Polański co-wrote it with Jerzy Skolimowski and Jakub Goldberg in Polish. Needless to say, much has changed since then, especially what people will call a good movie for the sake of it. Do yourself a favor and only go and see it if you enjoy long scenes, can appreciate borderline humor, are fascinated by Polish behavior and don't mind a black-and-white movie with only 3 actors in it. Otherwise, you might just not like it all that much.
The story? Polish couple meets Polish stranger and chillaxes with him on a private sail boat wherefrom they get to know each other better and reality seeps in. Naturalism as far from Hollywood as you can get - which is a definite plus.
