Polanski stars in this nightmare of his own making as a Polish-born file clerk who takes over a grim Paris apartment after the previous inhabitant commits suicide. It’s not long before he himself is driven to madness by the passive-aggressive (and just plain aggressive) psychological torture of his neighbors, until eventually he assumes the dead woman’s identity. Co-starring Isabelle Adjani.
