Swimming Pool
Ozon's seductive fantasy-thriller, reunites the director with his two muses, Charlotte Rampling and Ludivine Sagnier.

Rampling plays a successful British crime writer, Sarah Morton, who takes up the offer of a sojourn in the French countryside to revive her flagging creative spirit.

Julie (Sagnier) arrives on the scene to disturb the author's peace, and, despite Sarah's initial animosity towards this insolent interloper, her presence subtly begins to exert an enigmatic influence.

Constantly toying with the audience's notions of reality, Swimming Pool is as "a superb modulation of menace, tension, mystery and eroticism" Desson Thomson, Washington Post

Screened in Official Competition, Cannes Film Festival
