An apartment with an unhappy past, in a building filled with faintly sinister residents, sets the stage for Roman Polanskiâ€™s riveting thriller The Tenant. Polanski plays Trelkovsky, a quiet, timid file clerk whose unremarkable life becomes increasingly overshadowed with dread and fear after he moves into his new home. Adding to his paranoia are the buildingâ€™s other occupants, who do nothing to alleviate his growing obsession with the untimely, tragic fate of the apartmentâ€™s previous tenant.
Is Trelkovskyâ€™s dread truly justified â€” or is it simply the result of his seemingly disintegrating mental state? A brilliant international cast (Isabelle Adjani, Melvyn Douglas, Jo Van Fleet, Bernard Fresson, Lila Kedrova, Shelley Winters) and Polanskiâ€™s own talent for suspense and the macabre make The Tenant a haunting, riveting classic.
