Polanski's brilliantly crafted and profoundly morbid thriller about a London manicurist who harbors a consuming hatred of sex, and who, when her stable sister leaves town on a romantic holiday, goes spectacularly insane locked inside her flat — the walls turn to putty, the carcasses putrify, and the outside world won't keep away. Catherine Deneuve is for the first time used counter to her serene, blank appearance. 1965.
