Event Details

In this disquieting psychological thriller, an assimilated Parisian family sells their basement unit, unwittingly welcoming a Holocaust denier into their life, turning it upside down. The intruder ultimately challenges their assumptions about antisemitism in France and forces them to confront their tenuous Jewish identity. Easily read as a metaphor for contemporary society, this story of manipulation and menace features a chilling performance by Francois Cluzet as the stranger who so easily insinuates himself into a seemingly normal world. VIEW THE TRAILER.
