A little slow and a lot odd but worth a one time watch because well, you have to say you've seen this one!

Trelkovsky, a Polish file clerk in Paris, moves into a new apartment in the city. The previous tenant, Simone Choule, lies in a coma in a hospital after jumping out of her window. Trelkovsky's new neighbors are an assortment of old recluses and busybodies. While visiting the ex-tenant in the hospital, Trelkovski meets Stella, Simone's girlfriend. When Simone dies, Trelkovski obsesses over her and seems doomed to repeat her final act.

"8/8/17 Roman Polanski directed, co-wrote and starred in this psychological horror about a Polish man who moves into an apartment in France only to slowly be drawn into a world of paranoia that the other tenants want him dead. Strange, hypnotic and fascinating, it's not as good as his earlier Repulsion but it's far better than other films of this kind, although the ending is a little too obvious."
