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

"The masterful final panel in Roman Polanski’s remarkable “Apartment Trilogy,” The Tenant surpasses even Repulsion and Rosemary’s Baby in its portrayal of claustrophobia and dissipating sanity. Casting himself as Trelkovsky, a meek Polish wanderer whose new Paris residence comes equipped with sinister neighbors, mysterious hieroglyphs, and mystical intimations, the great director employs a comically escalating sense of dread to crystallize a worldview in which weaklings and barbarians jos"

"30.3. (DVD) Hyvin tunnelmallisena alkava Vuokralainen lässähtää uskottavuudeltaan jotakuinkin hieroglyfien löytymisen kohdilla: ilmeisesti alusta asti sekaisin olleen Trelkovskyn äkillinen pimahtaminen sormia naksauttamalla ei yksinkertaisesti purematta mennyt omaan mahalaukkuuni. Surrealistinen houremaailma sen sijan on melko kuumottava, joskin aivan viimeinen kohtaus alkaa olemaan jo niin flipannut, että katsoja alkaa pohtia, oliko tässä nyt edes tarkoitus etsiä kaikelle jonkinlaist"

"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."
