Overview

Charlotte Gainsbourg stars in this 1990s updating of George Cukor's Gaslight (1944). In an unnamed North American city, young Frenchwoman Catherine (Gainsbourg) stumbles into a police station and confesses to murdering her husband's ex-wife Stella. The cops remain unconvinced, as according to their records Stella was stabbed to death two years previously. The rest of the film is told in flashbacks. Soon after Catherine has left all she knew in Europe, she meets Nick (Charles Powell), a dashing film score composer. Not long afterwards, they marry, and she moves into his luxurious loft in an old apartment building. After learning about Nick's former wife's bloody demise, Catherine begins to notice weird things about the flat: a wine glass smudged with lipstick, crooked paintings, strands of another woman's hair, and a journal emblazoned with "SG." Her growing paranoia is only exaggerated by the odd assortment of people inhabiting the building, including a mysterious, ultra-fashionable German art broker, a wealthy math genius, and a wizened drunk who hobbles around with a cane. Soon Catherine finds herself fighting to maintain her sanity. The Intruder was screened at the 1999 Dinard Film Festival.
