Helen uses the word “sensitive” to describe Carol’s overall demeanor, which is almost like she walks around in a daze, rarely speaking up about anything. When she does speak up, it generally is about something against one of those few issues on which she obsesses, such as Helen’s boyfriend Michael’s invasion of her space at the apartment. That specific issue may be more about men in general than just Michael’s actions, as witnessed by Carol being agitated by hearing Helen and Michael’s lovemaking, and she not being able to rebuff the advances effectively of a male suitor, Colin, who is infatuated with her. One of those other obsessive issues is noticing cracks and always wanting to fix them. While Helen and Michael leave on a vacation to Pisa, Italy, Carol chooses largely to lock herself in the apartment, ditching work. There, she is almost hypnotized by her solitude, which leads to her mental state deteriorating as those obsessions come to the fore. She quickly descends into madness, which ultimately also affects those that are trying to get in touch with her.
Plot: Beautiful young manicurist Carole suffers from androphobia (the pathological fear of interaction with men). When her sister and roommate, Helen, leaves their London flat to go on an Italian holiday with her married boyfriend, Carole withdraws into her apartment. She begins to experience frightful hallucinations, her fear gradually mutating into madness.

Disturbing, Claustrophobic, Morbid
In London, Carole Ledoux (Catherine Deneuve) is a sexually repressed and schizophrenic young woman, living in a small apartment with her sister Héléne (Yvonne Fourneaux). Héléne has a lover and spends a couple of days travelling with him to Italy. Carole stays alone in the apartment, and becomes insane, having violent hallucinations of rape and murder.
“Repulsion” is a sick movie that has an outstanding performance of Catherine Deneuve, one of the most beautiful women in the world, in the beginning of her career. The direction and black and white cinematography are stunning for a low budget movie. The story is developed in slow pace, disturbing, claustrophobic, and morbid, and recommended for very specific audience. In the end, there is a hint regarding the reasons of the problems of Carole with her sexuality, when the camera comes closer to a picture of her family and she is looking fiercely to her father. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): ‘Repulsa ao Sexo’ (‘Repulse to Sex’)

Almost as suspenseful as watching paint dry
I was bored to tears when I watched this. I don’t understand why this was rated MA (on cable). This could have easily been rated PG-13. It was advertised as “still one of the most frightening movies of all time” but, in actuality it was one of the most boring movies of all time. My wife fell asleep after 20 minutes. It seems that nothing even happens until 3/4 of the way through the movie and then it doesn’t seem to be very much. The whole movie is more character development and less story. There were only a few seconds that really seemed to cause any sort of interest. If the movie were cut down to a 5 minute flick, then it may have seemed interesting but, as it is, I barely made it through the entire movie (and I can stand some pretty bad movies).
