In this taut psychological thriller, a benign real estate deal becomes a sinister standoff between a bourgeois French couple and a dangerous negationist. A Parisian architect sells his unused cellar to a former history teacher, well-mannered and seemingly normal. When he takes up residence, the stranger’s secret life as an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist emerges. As the couple struggles to rescind the sale, the buyer insinuates himself with their teenage daughter. Provocative and superbly acted, this nightmare scenario based on a true story will keep audiences guessing from one unsettling moment to the next.
