Repulsion

Catherine Deneuve is eerily brilliant in Polanski’s psychological thriller about a shy young Belgian living in London.

Roman Polanski’s deeply unsettling study of the psychological disintegration of a shy, distracted young Belgian when she’s left alone for a few days in the Kensington flat she normally shares with her sister benefits enormously from Deneuve’s superb lead performance. Most effective, however, is the brilliance of the direction, camerawork and editing, transforming the familiar world she inhabits into the stuff of expressionist nightmares.
