Hamilton Jewish Film Festival: The Man in the Basement

(France 2021; 114 minutes)

Tickets Available Here.

Starring Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) and François Cluzet (Untouchables), The Man in the Basement is a suspenseful psychological thriller and a timely exploration of antisemitism. Parisian couple Simon and Helene Sandberg are relieved when they find a trustworthy buyer for the basement in the apartment building they own. Only after the deed is signed do they discover that he is not the benign former teacher he initially portrayed himself to be, but a Holocaust denier who propagates his lies on the internet. As the couple struggles to rescind the sale, the increasingly menacing buyer insinuates himself with their teenage daughter, turning the family’s idyllic world upside down.
