The Tenant

THE TENANT (1976) - Season of Stars: Isabelle Adjani


This screening is part of ’Season of Stars’ which aims to showcase and propel into the spotlight those underrated actors that have graced our screens over the past century.


Director Roman Polanski casts himself in the lead of the psychological  thriller The Tenant. Trelkovsky (Polanski) rents an apartment in a  spooky old residential building, where his neighbors - mostly old  recluses - eye him with suspicious contempt. Upon discovering that the  apartment's previous tenant, a beautiful young woman, jumped from the  window in a suicide attempt, Trelkovsky begins obsessing over the dead  woman. Growing increasingly paranoid, Trelkovsky convinces himself that  his neighbors plan to kill him. He even comes to the conclusion that  Stella (Isabell Adjani), the woman he has fallen in love with, is in on  the "plot."
