Mia and Roman (1968)

*** (out of 4)

This promotional piece was filmed during the making of ROSEMARY'S BABY and was meant to put the spotlight on its star and director. Mia Farrow and Roman Polanski do the narration for what's pretty much a video diary of their work together. Not only do we get countless behind-the-scenes footage but we also see the two off the set doing a wide range of things. This includes Polanski racing a car and jousting. The director talks about his love of America and especially Los Angeles because it allows you to do just about everything you'd want. Farrow talks about bringing her cat to work, being happy on the set and just what it means to be an actress. You also get a pretty good collection of photos taken on the set, which features William Castle, Lauren Bacall and even Elia Kazan. MIA AND ROMAN is a rather unique short because it's great to see these two people in a way you normally wouldn't get to. There's one sequence where Polanski is seen kissing his wife Sharon Tate, which of course is rather sad when seen today considering what was about to happen. Fans of Farrow and Polanski will certainly want to check this film out and especially for all the behind-the-scenes stuff. It's also great getting to hear from both of them about what they expect from their profession and how they want to succeed. Towards the end of the movie is when we really get into the stuff dealing with ROSEMARY'S BABY and this is where fans will probably be most happy just getting to see Polanski directing certain scenes.
