Crafting a deliriously cinematic web of suspense, shock, eroticism, and power dynamics, writer/director François Ozon returns to master the thriller genre with DOUBLE LOVER. Chloé, who works as a guard at a museum in Paris, seeks to shore up her resiliency and enters psychoanalysis. Following the end of the treatment with psychiatrist Paul Meyer, both realize that they have fallen in love. A new chapter begins for Chloé when she and Paul move in together…yet Chloé soon comes to believe that Paul is keeping a secret. She impulsively visits another psychiatrist, Louis Delord. Spiraling emotional and sexual stakes will push all three of them to extremes, forcing Chloé to take action in order to solve a mystery and save herself. Nominated for a Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. "What gives the film its surprising coherence is not only the fluidity of Ozon's technique but also his mastery of tone, the ease with which he applies serious craft to a resolutely un-serious endeavor." - Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
