Tess (1979)

    Born | Nastassja Nakszynski

      By the time 1993 came around, Ms. Kinski was still younger than, say, Anjelica Huston was when Prizzi's Honor opened. And yet even then Kinski had been "gone" - with child, husband, retired, or in minor films that do not open widely for several years. Since then, she has moved in the same ever decreasing circles until today she is but a rumour, a whisper, in the hallowed corridors of the screen gods.

    Yet there was a moment, in the early eighties, when Kinski was the rage, a sensation . . . the most beautifial girl in the world. Her greatest interest may be in pioneering the new brevity of such rages.

    I suspect I wasn't alone in this but I thought that she was so beautiful that all I wanted was a girlfriend who looked remotely like her. In the end I settled for a Klaus Kinski lookalike but that's another story,

    In May 1982, she was on the cover of Rolling Stone, in one of several Avedon photographs that showed her naked and tousled in bed. John Simon's text began:

      "I ask myself what makes Nastassia [remember that?] Kinski, at twenty-one, the biggest sex symbol of 1982, and perhaps of many years to come . . ."

    The piece went on - as if Simon had been in that bed with Kinski:

      "The breasts are perfect, though some might think them a bit small, pubescent; over the youthfully querying eyes, the brows are adult and ripely female. Or consider the voice: high and trilling one instant, then, suddenly, overcast, sensually clouded, as if a dark velvet hood descended protectively over some precious crystal object. The walk is emphatic: a very feminine presence approaching with masculine directness ..."

    But the rage wasn't just John Simon and Rolling Stone. Avedon photographed Kinski with a python - the reptile and the lady in just their shining skins. Paul Schrader, in love with Kinski, said she was like the young Ingrid Bergman. Time put her on its cover: the profile writer, Richard Corliss, called her "Nasty." Director James Toback told the press that Norman Mailer had told him she had a quality like Monroes.

    I met Ms. Kinski, and she was lovely, uncertain, tricky, and helplessly seductive: it was evident that she looked to every new movie director as potential lover. Yet she was somehow frozen, too, as if waiting to be memorialized in still photographs, conscious of the huge effect she was having. She had vague plans for more training, for theater, and for a career. But it seemed plain that she was the victim of the speed with which her life was moving, the eroticism of allowing oneself to be looked at, and the sheer perishability of such intensity.

    What can one say after the sensation? That she was like thousands of other young women? That she had an extraordinarily alert, waiting gaze, enough to rivet other people and sway the camera?

    She was also Klaus Kinski's daughter. The family lived together for some eight years before divorce. What did that do to the child? There was a time when she did not speak to her father - yet talking to Klaus Kinski was never enough.

    She was silent in Wrong Movement (75, Wim Wenders); To the Devil - A Daughter (76, Peter Sykes); Reifenzeugnis (76, Wolfgang Petersen); Boarding School (78, Andre Farwagi); Stay As You Are (78, Alberto Lattuada); very accomplished and touching as Tess (79, Roman Polanski); the circus girl in One From the Heart (82, Francis Ford Coppola); daringly sensual and often naked as the released sexual urge in Cat People (82, Schrader); as Clara Wieck in Spring Symphony (83, Peter Schamoni); The Moon in the Gutter (83, Jean-Jacques Beneix); her body played by violinist Rudolph Nureyev's bow in Exposed (83, Toback); the old Linda Darnell role in Unfaithfully Yours (84, Howard Zieff), her childishness awoken by Dudley Moore; at her best in Paris, Texas (84, Wenders); The Hotel New Hampshire (84, Tony Richardson); Maria's Lovers (84, Andrei Konchalovsky); Revolution (85, Hugh Hudson); and Harem (85, Arthur Joffe).

    It was over. She married and had children. Later on, she moved in with musician Quincy Jones and had another child. There have been more films, made in Europe, bnt only a few are notable: Intervista (87, Federico Fellini); Torrents of Spring (88, Jerzy Skolimowski); Night Sun (90, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani); and Faraway, So Close (93, Wenders).
