Swimming Pool ★★★★★

Mischievous and alluring.

Set in the disquieting serenity of the French countryside, the mystery of Ozon’s psychosexual double-hander is found in the glowing contours of the human body amongst dreamlike domestic and exterior spaces, eviscerating the nature of desire by using the power of subtext to create a world of perverse fantasy, where layers of female sexuality are stripped-back like the methodical peeling of an onion and tension sizzles fiercely under the heat of the summer sun.

Deception has never looked so good and Rampling reigns surpreme.
