Critic Reviews for Double Lover (L'amant double)
What gives the film its surprising coherence is not only the fluidity of Ozon's technique but also his mastery of tone, the ease with which he applies serious craft to a resolutely un-serious endeavor.
For a film about identical-twin gynecologists who share a woman, David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers was awfully psychological. Conversely, for a film about identical-twin psychologists who share a woman, François Ozon's latest is awfully gynecological.
It does rely on certain Gallic attitudes toward women that don't travel well. Louis' psychiatric method could reasonably be described as sexual assault, and the notion that Chloe might be "hysterical" is at best archaic.
Dark, kinky and twisty with a modernist sheen, "Double Lover" delivers a delightfully messed up cavalcade of erotic hijinks.
Francois Ozon's good twin/bad twin thriller puts dull Hollywood twaddle like Fifty Shades Freed to shame with its wild, wanton ride into the subconscious. Prepare for a mindblower.
Audience Reviews for Double Lover (L'amant double)
Ozon concots a bizarre thriller that could have been easily made by Brian De Palma or Paul Verhoeven in the '80s, surprising us with the laughable absurdity of his situations yet failing to come up with a consistent payoff to match all the tension and curiosity evoked until then.
