SWIMMING POOL
2003, Focus Features, 102 min, France/UK, Dir: François Ozon

A British mystery author, a summer house in the South of France and a poolside escapade gone awry are the basic ingredients of this Hitchcockian thriller starring Charlotte Rampling and Ludivine Sagnier. The Palme d’Or competitor has no shortage of Ozon twists and turns as it depicts the commission of a single mistake and the efforts of two women to contain that mistake.
