François Ozon returns with this sleek, irreverent erotic thriller that sees the prolific French auteur ramping up the sexual tension while keeping his tongue firmly in his cheek. Marine Vacth is Chloé, a young woman who falls for her psychoanalyst Paul (Jérémie Renier). When they move in together, things seem perfect; but then a series of discoveries leads her to believe he may be living a double life. Combining Hitchcockian intrigue with nods to Brian de Palma and David Cronenberg, L’Amant Double is a whirlwind of heightened senses and amped-up drama: filthy, flamboyant and a whole lot of fun.
