A young woman falls in love with her psychoanalyst and moves in with him, but soon discovers that her lover has a secret identity. Double Lover is a deliriously uninhibited thriller directed by French filmmaker Francois Ozon. We’ve screened a number of his films including last summer’s Frantz. Adapted from a novel by Joyce Carol Oates, Double Lover delights in the erotic twists and turns one might expect from it’s title.
France / 107 minutes / Double Lover is not rated but if it were it would almost certainly be rated R for frequent steamy sex.
Double Lover is a KNOTTY DELIGHT OF A THRILLER. — The New York Times
In his previous films, director Francois Ozon explored the intersection of emotion and sexuality; this provocative film is likely to stimulate more than conversation. The film finds, through edgy exaggeration, a deeper, more penetrating truth. –The Washington Post
