The Tenant Reviews

February 18, 2010
A disturbing and poignant anthology of Roman Polanski's favourite, oppressive themes.
October 18, 2008
It has a humorous tang, underlying the macabre.
June 24, 2006
As the plot escalates into increasingly arbitrary excesses of fantasy and heads for the predictable pay-off, the movie looks more and more like a potboiler.
May 9, 2005
The film is superbly acted by Mr. Polanski, Mr. Douglas and Miss Winters.
October 23, 2004
As a film by Polanski, it's unspeakably disappointing.
February 3, 2004
It's an exercise in urban paranoia and mental disintegration that echoes or anticipates everything from Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby to Bitter Moon and The Pianist.
June 28, 2003
The Tenant isn't so much a psychological portrait of grief as it is an unnerving acknowledgement of the ambiguous nature of the world.
January 1, 2000
The end result is somewhere between Franz Kafka and William Castle, but still worth seeing.
