Le Locataire [The Tenant] (1976)


The Tenant resonated with me. Why? It’s a film about the immigrant experience, an experience I know quite well. Granted, what I have experienced as an immigrant is miniscule compared to the treatment Polanski’s Trelkovsky undergoes here – I truly can’t complain all too much about how Britain has treated me in my time here – though I still emphasise with the experience Polanski is attempting to express here, he hits those same feelings of alienation and an inability to communicate meaningfully with those around you. 33 more words
