Swimming Pool 15 rating

A crime novelist seeks peace but gets a dangerous muse in this twisted bilingual thriller from François Ozon.

Drama 2002 102 mins

Director: François Ozon

Overview

François Ozon's feature revolves on disruption, as quiet contemplation yields to escalating danger. Promiscuity trumps repression too, but Charlotte Rampling and Ludivine Sagnier make it a grand battle. A third character – the Avignon summerhouse – provides a tainted elegance wholly in keeping with the theme.

The film had a presence at many of the major awards, including nominations for a Palme d'Or and two Césars.
