The Tenant (1976) (18)



Following Repulsion and Rosemary’s Baby, writer-director Roman Polanski concludes his seminal trilogy undermining the security of urban life. After moving into a new apartment, a bureaucrat (played by Polanski) quickly comes to believe his neighbours are conspiring against his life. This thrilling, surreal nightmare confirmed Polanski as the master of paranoia.

These days, relationships with neighbours can be… quite complicated.

“Adapting for the screen, whether it be a novel, a stage play, a biography, a historical event or a newspaper article, presents its own particular problems, perhaps more technical, but in no way less intricate than writing an original screenplay. I’ve spent decades ruminating on these issues, without necessarily having reached any firm conclusions, though I do by now, I suppose, have a few tentative suggestions. I’m delighted at the opportunity to visit Bridport to be able to kick some of these suggestions around.”
