Movie Info

In a rundown area of Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the dawn of the 1980s, Adrian LeDuc (Colin Firth) owns both a struggling movie theater and a shabby apartment building filled with eccentric, squabbling tenants; his institutionalized mother (Elvia Andreoli) adds further pressure. To make ends meet, Adrian takes in a roommate, Jack Carney (Hart Bochner), but soon begins to suspect that the quiet American is responsible for a series of political assassinations that are rocking the city.

Audience Reviews for Apartment Zero

  • Sep 08, 2013
    In "Apartment Zero," Adrian LeDuc(Colin Firth) runs a moribund repertory cinema club in Buenos Aires but turns down his friend Claudia's(Francesca d'Aloja) offers to rent out his theatre for political meetings, preferring, in his words, to keep the blood off the walls and on the screen. With his mother(Elvia Andreoli) requiring constant medical care, he puts an ad in the newspaper for a roommate. After a few applicants that do not meet his high standards, Jack(Hart Bochner), a hunky American, shows up to rent the room, with Adrian even making him breakfast. Early on in "Apartment Zero," Adrian admonishes people who watch films on video, saying they prefer to skip through the slow parts. Later on, I was thinking again of that statement, wondering if Adrian could possibly be commenting on the film he is in, as it suffers from a particularly crawling pace, even with its psychosexual themes on full display. Just as the movie finally kicks into gear when it takes a turn towards the baroque in its last act, it also takes an extremely roundabout way to also take full advantage of its intriguing post-junta milieu. A situation Adrian ignores because he has had his head in the sand, apparently due to his love of movies.(He even acts more English than Argentinian.) In any case, Colin Firth is superb, years before he would cause half of England to have a spontaneous orgasm.

    An intriguing, intense psychological thriller with sexual overtones set in Buenos Aires, about a lonely cinema owner Adrian LeDuc, played by Colin Firth in a sensational, multi-layed performance, who's life is changed when circumstances forced him to rent his insane mother's room who is the hospital, to a mysterious, handsome stranger named Jack Carney, played by Hart Bochner in a compelling performance. Adrian is obsessively attracted to Jack, and the two form a bizarre relationship, that has an unspoken sexual longing. This connection becomes troubled when reports of bodies in the streets begin, and Adrian starts to believe that Jack is hiding a horrific secret, that he may be the mass murderer that has been terrorizing the city. Extremely well acted by the entire cast, brilliantly directed and scripted by Martin Donovan. A dramatically charged film with Hitchcockian elements that give it suspense and its wicked black humor. Highly Recommended.

    This is Colin Firth like you've never seen him before! If you are used to Mr. Darcy, then you will be as surprised as I was to see him in this role. He was excellent! He is just weird as Adrian LeDuc who rents a room to Jack Carney, played by Hart Bochner. The story unfolds as a killer is on the loose and Adrian is dealing with the deterioration of his ailing mother. He just keeps getting weirder and weirder and I blame his nosy neighbors, who are also weird in their own right. I didn't expect the movie to end as it did but when you think about it, it all makes sense. My mom recommended this movie to me when we were in Buenos Aires, since that is where the movie takes place. Didn't recognize any of the sites, but it was well worth a watch.
