The lodger

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Ην. Βασίλειο/UK, 1927, 90’ DCP, α/μ/b&w, Χωρίς ήχο/Silent

The lodger is Hitchcock’s first important film: “The whole approach to this film was instinctive with me. It was the first time I exercised my style. In truth, you might almost say that The lodger was my first picture”, he recounts to Truffaut. Shot during his silent period in England, the film tells the adventures of a lodger of a furnished apartment, until the landlady sees in his face the wanted murderer. It launches the theme that recurs in his later work, which, as Truffaut ascertains, is about: “A man accused of a crime of which he’s innocent”.
