François Ozon is back in thriller mode with L’AMANT DOUBLE / DOUBLE LOVER. Loosely based on the novel Lives of the Twins by Joyce Carol Oates, the film is a delirious tour de force of game playing and role switching among a tight circle of haute bourgeois Parisiens.
Marine Vacth is Chloé, an ex-model stricken with severe abdominal pains that her doctor tells her are all in her head… so she goes to see Paul, a therapist (Jérémie Renier). Nothing more can be given away.
