Set in modern day Buenos Aires, the film centers around a relationship between two emotionally crippled roommates. Adrian LeDuc is a lonely sociopath who is forced to rent his insane mothers room due to poor ticket sales at his revival movie theater. Jack Carney, the new roommate, appears normal enough at first but it soon becomes apparent that he is hiding something. As their friendship develops, Adrian suppresses his suspicions that Jack may be the government mercenary turned serial killer who has been terrorizing the city. The other eccentric residents of the building begin to worry as Adrian shows increasing signs that his mothers insanity may be hereditary. The shocking climax of this twisted tale of deceit, perversion and murder reveals the darker side of the human psyche. Written by
I'm the surviver of a couple of days "Apartment Zero" debate. I wish I had recorded the arguments. The extraordinary Colin Firth leads the way without meaning to. He himself - I mean, Adrian, Colin's character - doesn't know where he is going, in fact I suspect he doesn't even know that he is moving. The only real things in his life are the painful deterioration of his mother, financial hardship and whatever he sees on the screen of his revival theatre. I wondered how is it possible that he doesn't realises the danger. The director doesn't design a whodunit for us. He tells us, one way or another, that Jack (Hart Bochner) is too good to be true. We know it, Adrian doesn't. Until he sees it on the screen of his own theatre. He understand the danger only when it's projected on a screen. I think that's a fabulous way to tell a story. I was participating in the unveiling, unable to decide. Hoping for Adrian to open up, allowing Jack's designs to materialise even if that could mean a living hell or protecting the zeroness of his existence for ever. The face of Colin Firth when he sees the CU2 on the screen is one of the best silent screams of realisation I have ever seen. Part of the argument is that CU2 is not "See you two" but if you're a foreigner, try to pronounce CU2 and See You Two and you won't hear any difference. Adrian may speak like David Niven but he is not British. He has assumed an old British identity as a shield. The keys to open the doors of "Apartment Zero" are many and varied. You must try to find the right one, that's the thing, and you must never force the lock. Remember he CU2.
