No one does it to you like Roman Polanski.
A quiet and inconspicuous man (Trelkovsky) rents an apartment in France where the previous tenant committed suicide, and begins to suspect his landlord and neighbors are trying to subtly change him into the last tenant so that he too will kill himself.

Often cited as a classic, I found the film to be overwrought and unconvincing. Probably didn't help that I watched the film, one man's descent into madness, whilst I had the flu!

Still, one to rent rather than buy, in my opinion. Get it? Rent? Oh well!
