Amazing atmospheric film from '76 and part III in the unofficial Apartment trilogy by Polanski (together with Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby). This film shows Polanski himself as the protagonist and tenant and the one that goes slightly mad. Again we question if it is indeed him that goes crazy or his surroundings/neighbours. The apartment is a beautiful metaphor for society and xenophobia. Especially for Polanski and his Polish past.
At times scary as hell and the scene with the "hallucinations" (the 2d chair) is incredible, even by today's standards.
Great story, great cast (would love to see more of Isabella Adjani) and nice shots of Paris in the seventies.
What's with the poster of 'La Peinture Lure' that shows up some times in the film?
