L'Amant Double (18)
This production ended on 24/02/2018
"François Ozon ( Swimming Pool, 8 Women, and the recent Frantz) dabbles in a lot of different genres to the point where you never quite know what to expect when he returns with a new project. His latest offering, L’Amant Double, is a ‘deliciously twisted’ erotic thriller, starring Jérémie Renier (Silence of Lorna) as the psychiatrist treating Chloé, a vulnerable Parisienne model who gradually finds out more about his past as their relationship develops.
L’Amant Double nostalgically evokes such naïve psychological thrillers as Spellbound suggesting some kind of mutant love child hatched between Alfred Hitchcock and Paul Verhoeven, though its fingerprints are undeniably Ozon’s. Variety
