The Tenant

Polanski's most autobiographical film is, like "Repulsion", a journey through the distorted realm of the human mind. Polanski himself plays Trelkovsky, a nebbish file clerk who moves into the apartment of a young suicide and becomes deeply paranoid, certain that the other tenants are trying to drive him to suicide.
