A mentally unstable young woman living in London (Catherine Deneuve) is afraid of being left alone following a personal trauma. When her sister announces that she is going on a short vacation, Deneuve finds herself unable to deal with the solitude. This fascinating, extremely well-directed thriller by Roman Polanski features a kaleidoscope of phobias and nightmarish dream sequences where Deneuve believes that she is being attacked from all angles, even by the very walls of her house. Moody and gothic, featuring Deneuve in one of her most memorable roles.
