“L’Amant double” finds director François Ozon at his most outrageous! After the subdued, contained emotion of “Frantz” he lets rip with his latest film, producing a steamy, no holds barred erotic thriller. It tells the story of Chloé, a former model, who is referred to psychiatrist Paul Meyer for therapy. It is not long before they embark upon a romantic liaison. Although their relationship is a happy one, Chloé can’t help but feel perturbed by Paul’s reluctance to reveal anything about his past. One day she discovers that he has a twin brother, Louis, also a psychiatrist. Not being able to resist temptation, she visits him and discovers that his working practices are rather more dubious than Paul’s… Sexually explicit and crammed with all kinds of visual tricks and lurid imagery, “L’Amant double” is as exhilarating as it is provocative. You have been warned!!
