A quiet young sexually-repressed hairstylist finds herself left alone for a few days when her sister and sister's boyfriend leave on holiday; suffering a series of violent hallucinations and constant paranoia, her mind unravels into madness. One of Catherine Deneuve's most memorable roles, and perhaps Polanski's finest film.
