L’Appartement (Gilles Momouni, France, 1996)

Hitchcock echoes through this realm of obsession, voyeurism and desire… A smart, sexy, and effortlessly cool first feature.
— Time Out

Writer/director Gilles Momouni takes inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock, most notably Rear Window and Vertigo, in this classy, twisty - and let's be honest: damn sexy - little thriller. Vincent Cassel plays an amateur writer whose life gets rather complicated after the chance sighting of an old flame plays havoc with his plans for a nicely-ordered bourgeois life of wedded bliss. Also starring Monica Belluci and Romane Bohringer.
