Split personalities, evil shrinks… This is the stuff that waking nightmares are made of and master visual stylist Francois Ozon (Frantz, LIFF 17) brings a distinctly Gallic elegance and wit to this psychosexual thriller. Adapted from a Joyce Carol Oates novel, Double Lover centers on Chloe (Marine Vacth) a fragile young museum guard suffering from psychosomatic stomach pains, who falls in love with her analyst Paul (Jérémie Renier). Soon after she moves into his apartment, Chloe spots Paul embracing another woman on the street; when confronted, he admits to having a twin brother, also a therapist. Both suspicious and curious, Chloe makes an appointment with Paul’s brother under an assumed name… and it’s down the rabbit hole. With a tip of the hat to filmmakers like DePalma and Cronenberg, Ozon tells a deliciously twisted tale that will keep viewers guessing long after the shattering finale. (For mature audiences)
