Knife in the Water | Roman Polanski (1962) 

Initially, Polanski wanted to make a criminal story about a couple which takes a young hitchhiker to a boat trip, and at the end the boy dies in mysterious circumstances. 
In his version the trip was about a week long a involved some other characters. It was Jerzy Skolimowski who proposed to shorten it to one day and limit the number of characters. 
The final script was created in only three, four days by Polanski, Skolimowski and Jakub Goldberg in Polanski's apartment. While writing the script they were playing the dialogue, changing the roles all the time.

* One of Mick Jagger's favorite movies according to an interview in the German magazine 'Cinema'(9/2014). He first saw it in a film club at university.
