Title: The Lodger
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Cast: Ivor Novello, June, Michael Keen, Marie Ault
Duration: 1h 31
One of Alfred Hitchcock's first films is based on the story of Jack The Ripper.
When the owners Marie Ault and her husband Arthur Chesney receive a new tenant (Ivor Novello), they are happy: he is calm, humble and pays the rent in advance. But his mysterious and suspicious behavior makes them wonder if he is the killer who terrorizes blonde girls. Their daughter, Daisy, is much less worried, her attraction to him being obvious.
As the suspicion that the new tenant may not be what it seems, the tension reaches almost unbearable levels.
The Lodger, the silent film that Hitchcock directed in 1927, is generally recognized as the one in which the artist found his own style: the distinct combination of death and fetishism, humor and intense tension.
The film will be accompanied musically by the Oradea based artist Dubase. In 2002, he founded the Guerilla Outernational label, the logo under which he organizes numerous parties and promotes breaks with Leizaboy.
One of the first artists in Romania to accompany live films. He made his first cine-concerts at TIFF Cluj Napoca, where he sonorously re-illustrated silent films selected from the cinematographic archives.
