L'amant Double / The Double Lover

Thu 30 Nov 2017


An erotic thriller about a woman who falls in love with her psychoanalyst. But director Francois Ozon's up to his old tricks, so of course it turns out to be more to him than meets the eye.

Prices Vary

Francois Ozon's erotic thriller, about a woman Chloé (Marion Vacth from Young and Beautiful) who falls in love with Paul, her psychoanalyst (Jérémie Renier) but discovers there's more to him than meets the eye, sees the director back to his old tricks after the restrained Second World War saga Franz. His latest foray has style, sex appeal and a delicious streak of craziness. When Chloé and Paul move into their new apartment she discovers a box containing Paul’s past, including a passport bearing a different surname. A web of secrets are about to be unleashed … Loosely based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel Lives of the Twins (written under the pseudonym Rosamond Smith) and with distinct shades of Brian de Palma and Hitchcock on the side. Watch out for Jacqueline Bisset in a neat cameo part.
