This was another movie that would have flown under my radar except that it was talked about by the festival discord. I had no idea what I was in for when I started it and it kept surprising me. It was directed by Baptiste Drapeau and written by Ollivier Briand, Mauricio Carrasco, and Baptiste Drapeau. It is a French film.
Alice Issaz and Jacqueline Bisset are absolutely amazing in this film. Alice Issaz as Julie the fresh faced nursing student drives the story. Jacqueline Bisset as Elizabeth the older woman kicks off the plot. Julie is the titular lodger and you are taken on a journey throughout.
The film will keep you guessing and have you questioning whether you know what’s actually happening or not. If you have a chance you should definitely check out The Lodger.
