the tenant

The tenant 
Director Roman Polanski  
The film made (1976) 

In Paris a shy and timid man named (Roman Polanski) also directed "The tenant". Played as (bureaucrat Trelkovsk).Trelkovsk Rents a old apartment in a upper-class building. 
"From the outset the building gives you a depressing feeling". 
(Bureaucrat Trelkovsk)  Meet the landlord named (Monsieur Zy) actor (Melvyn Douglas) he gives a stern warning "no funny business and no loud music"
in an interview with the landlord (Bureaucrat Trelkovsk mentions why did the apartment become available. (Monsieur Zy) replies the recent tenant committed suicide and jumped out of the window.
After the interview (bureaucrat Trelkovsk). Excerpts the terms and conditions
A few days later (bureaucrat Trelkovsk) He begins to see strange things. One day (bureaucrat Trelkovsk) looks out of his apartment window across the courtyard to the bathroom window and begins the see a strange thing.
But he shrugs it off like nothing happened a few days later you begin to see the deterioration of (bureaucrat Trelkovsk) as you slowly see him fall apart.
With director (Roman Polanski) he slowly takes away the safety of your home and turns it upside down.
With a very sickly colour palette. Mood shading. Although this was executed superbly I found myself still wanting answers not specifically but in general.
But maybe this is the direction of Roman Polanski. This is a very dark and twisted film taking you out of your comfort zone and putting you straight back there this is a horror film of a different kind.

Cole Smithey
The Tenant carries the most shocking double climax in all of cinema.
The Tenant is one of Roman Polanski's greatest and darkest films

Dan Jardine
Roman Polanski's key error is almost certainly casting himself in the lead, as he is not an adept enough thespian to pull of the challenging transformation of his character.
