Product Details

Roman Polanski directs and stars as Trelkovsky, an expatriate pole in Paris who takes over the lease of a gloomy apartment and comes to believe that the other tenants in the block are conspiring to drive him to kill himself. The real or imagined conspiracy is supported by the suicide of the previous tenant. Trelkovsky finds himself assuming the identity of his predecessor, but the twist that sets this film above the competition is that this previous occupant was a girl. Polanski uses this twist to explore the character’s latent bisexuality in an atmosphere of paranoia and delusion. Also starring Shelley Winters as the concierge, Isabelle Adjani as Stella and Melvyn Douglas as Mr Zy, The Tenant features a cocktail of bizarre coincidences, inexplicable appearances and suggestions of the supernatural all brought together by master craftsman Polanski in this absorbing psychological thriller.
