(France/2007/directed by Claude Chabrol)

Claude Chabrol is France’s grand master of suspense. With nearly 60 feature films behind him, including Le Boucher and This Man Must Die, Chabrol returns triumphantly to the screen with this razor-sharp, darkly seductive social satire, filled with unforgettably nasty characters. Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool) is an ambitious and beautiful TV weather girl, torn between her love for a jaded novelist several decades her senior and the attentions of the young heir to a pharmaceutical fortune – whose bizarrely unstable behavior becomes increasingly alarming. As the whims and demands of both men begin to take their toll, passions darken, and the stakes of this fiendishly entertaining tale lead inexorably to a shocking yet satisfying conclusion. New York, Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. (115 min.)

“Terrific… an acidic high comedy of amorous secrets.”  -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
