Synopsis:
L'Appartement is a fanciful and romantic tale of love and obsession. A blend of Gallic romanticism and Hitchcockian style, this film is a delicious pastiche of five people's passions and lives. The story circles around Max (Vincent Cassel), on the verge of getting married, who suddenly overhears the voice of Lisa (Monica Bellucci), his long-lost love, arguing emotionally on the phone outside the men's room. He manages to track down her apartment, but in it he discovers another woman, who claims to be the Lisa he has overheard. She seduces him and manages to become the focus of his attention. However, the story line is only beginning to twist...

Either Fantastic or Silly Twaddle - The Apartment review by MR

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2018

Those are both from the imdb reviews - I tend to the latter. It's complicated, full of flashbacks, very stylish - and that applies to all the characters and to the settings, implausible, but moderately entertaining as you got into what was going on. The acting had to be weirdly neutral to keep the mood going, so why would you care about any of the characters.
