Repulsion is one of the most innovative and effective films on the subject of mental illness from the side of the patient. Catherine Deneuve embodies Carole, a Belgian immigrant who lives at the fashionable residential neighborhood of South Kensington in London. In a world where sex is something very important for her working, friendly and family environment, the character displays strong signs of oppressed sexuality which gradually develop into paranoia. Polanski displays a fully detailed and accurate presentation of the feellings and thoughts of a mentally deranged person combined with an apt visualization of the element of paranoia and fear in a way that is both stunning and repulsive. The director tries to deconstruct the phaenomenon of paranoia in an sum of different social and family factors while his unconventional use of shading, camera angles and music, show us a mature and distinctive film director and give the film a huge artistic value.
