Confusing thriller is absolutely NOT for kids.

Cinema Crazed

This is a very well directed with a good story, great characters, and involving engrossing performances from Charlotte Rampling and Ludivine Sagnier.

Looking Closer

Rampling and Ozon clearly enjoy working together. Rampling relishes psychologically complex roles. Ozon respects his leading ladies enough to give them challenges.

Cinema Sight

Charlotte Rampling is engaging in this intriguing little whodunit that seems more intent on exposing internal paranoia than it does on real world murder.

Tiene que ver con eso de la ficción y de ser espectadores, y hasta qué punto creemos lo que se ve en la pantalla como una realidad y no como el antojo de un director de cine.

[An] interesting character study of the two women [portrayed].

Low IQ Canadian

Although copious amounts of French nudity constitutes, to some degree, its own reward, Swimming Pool is marred by stupor and a fake-as-Lee-Press-On-Nails coda.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

As in Chabrol, the plot's not the thing: what drives Swimming Pool is the transformations that take place within its characters. Rampling is a pleasure.

Las Vegas CityLife

Ozon's first English-language film is a blend of fantasy and reality that is cleverly constructed and nearly seemless.

Stick around for the surprise finish; it's a good one, even if the rest of Swimming Pool stays close to the shallow end.

...provoking and stimulating to a fault, a movie that genuinely seems to care about its messages and the people it involves.

Reno Gazette-Journal

The twist ending is unsatisfying and the daughter's role underdeveloped (even if her body isn't).

One wishes Orzon was less impressed with his cleverness, and had given some thought to how it would actually play for audiences.

Window to the Movies

Is this a mystery thriller or a very slow comedy? Whatever it is, the two lead actresses make the task of finding out delectable.

Charlotte Rampling's superb performance and the film's artistic, enigmatic ending will haunt me for a long time to come.

Providing his two favorite actresses with departure roles that have a captivating culmination, Ozon's appreciation of their talents is completely contagious.

Mark Palermo
Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

For a story about the boundlessness of the body and mind, it's told with an asphyxiating conservatism.
