When they decide to move in together, everything seems perfect until a series of discoveries lead her to believe that he may be living a double life.

No warmth or soul here - L'Amant Double review by TE

Spoiler Alert
09/01/2019

Flashy, tricksy film with no substance. It plays with the various permutations of "twins", but not in any satisfying or meaningful way.

Slick cleverness triumphs over character and narrative, making for an empty viewing experience.

The film also trots out the ancient stereotype that women are somehow irresistibly drawn to violent, abusive lovers.

Very disappointing from Ozon.

Jaw-dropping psycho-sexual mystery - L'Amant Double review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
28/02/2019

Although promoted as an erotic thriller, this is more of a mystery than a thriller and will be too deliberately paced for many. It’s lifted out of the ordinary by its weirdness, its erotic charge and Francois Ozon’s faultless direction. The stunning opening close-up, for example, dissolves from a vulva into an eye.

All you need to know is that our heroine gets herself involved with two psychiatrists, who are physically identical but have very different personalities. If you don’t know what trisomy is, you will after this, to say nothing of the medical condition that leads to the film’s climax.

The DVD includes an interesting interview in which the director talks about the techniques he used (split screen, zooms, mirrors etc.) to add playfulness to the film. If only he’d added a faster pace and more danger. Worth a watch, though.

Pathetic Nonsense - L'Amant Double review by EJ

Spoiler Alert
12/02/2019

What the heck! Trying to be too clever and producing a ridiculous nonsense movie. Literally left us wanting to vomit! What a mixed up, ugly film.
