Cinema : The tenant


This supremely unsettling adaptation of Roland Topor’s novel boasts a magnificent central performance by Polanski himself as the timid renter of a Parisian apartment vacant after the previous tenant’s suicide.

Even the presence of Stella (Isabelle Adjani) can’t dispel his mounting paranoia about his neighbours, and he retreats into nightmarish solitude… Sven Nykvist’s elegant camera movements heighten the hallucinatory mood, while Philippe Sarde’s score creates a subtle undercurrent of poignancy.
