DOUBLE LOVER

 L'AMANT DOUBLE

FRANCE • THRILLER • 107 MINS • 2017 • R18+
Directed by: FRANÇOIS OZON
Starring: Jérémy Renier, Marine Vacth, Jacqueline Bisset, Dominique Reymond
Visually confronting and indisputably provocative, Double Lover is the latest addition to the sexually charged oeuvre of the both polarising and prolific François Ozon (Time to Leave, AF FFF2006; Potiche AF FFF2011; The New Girlfriend, AF FFF2015).

Former model Chloé (Marine Vacth, also in If You Saw His Heart in this year’s Festival) falls in love with her psychoanalyst, Paul (Jérémie Renier, The Wedding Cake and Potiche, AF FFF2010; Eternity, AF FFF2017), while seeking counselling for sexual dysfunction. As their relationship develops, Chloé discovers her lover is hiding an insidious part of his identity that forces her to confront not only her most deeply buried secrets but also her darkest, most compelling desires. Reality and fantasy distort as their entanglement tightens and threatens to send them both over the edge.

Calling to mind world cinema’s more divisive psychosexual thrillers – such as Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers (1988) and Louis Malle’s Damage (1992) – Double Lover oozes with a distinctly Ozon 'je ne sais quoi'. Right from its attentiongrabbing opening sequence, this film delivers abundantly in its promise of being an electrifyingly twisted, erotic thriller.
