Details

Loosely based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel Lives of the Twins, François Ozon’s gleefully irreverent erotic thriller has distinct shades of Brian de Palma and Alfred Hitchcock. Chloé (Marion Vacth) falls in love with her psychoanalyst Paul (Jérémie Renier), but discovers there’s more to him than meets the eye. When the couple move into their new apartment, Chloe discovers a box containing clues to Paul’s past, including a passport bearing a different surname. Paul’s web of secrets is about to unravel.

£6 ticketsFri 1 June (15.15)

Playful and stylish pastiche of the Fatal Attraction-style potboiler. Ozon is an effective enough filmmaker to send up conventions of such films even as he seems to endorse them.
