François Ozon returns with L’AMANT DOUBLE, a sleek but gleefully irreverent erotic thriller that sees the prolific French auteur ramping up the sexual tension while keeping his tongue firmly in his cheek.
Chloé, a young woman who falls in love with her psychoanalyst Paul. When they decide to move in together, everything seems perfect until a series of discoveries lead her to suspect that he may be living a double life. As she searches for the truth, Chloé’s investigations plunge her into a dark and bewildering world of smoke, mirrors and doppelgangers – where nothing is as it seems, and no one can be trusted.
Combining Hitchcockian intrigue with nods to Brian de Palma and David Cronenberg, this is a theatre of excess that delights in keeping its audience guessing. A whirlwind of heightened senses and amped-up drama, L’AMANT DOUBLE is filthy, flamboyant and a whole lot of fun.
Starring Marine Vacth, Jérémie Renier, Jacqueline Bisset

“Francois Ozon’s good twin/bad twin thriller puts dull Hollywood twaddle like Fifty Shades Freed to shame with its wild, wanton ride into the subconscious. Prepare for a mindblower.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Filled to the brim with pure cinematic imagery and knowing irony” – Sam Gray, The Upcoming
