Critic Reviews for Double Lover (L'amant double)

All Critics (104) | Top Critics (31) | Fresh (73) | Rotten (31)

  • A genre film taking a woman to the extremes of sanity while always honouring her emotions, L'Amant Double is a bold and often disturbing spectacle.

    July 4, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Ozon is an effective enough filmmaker to send up conventions of such films even as he seems to endorse them.

    May 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's Cronenberg's Dead Ringers done by a European determined to arty it up with no clear idea of why or how.

    May 30, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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, Franois Ozon's latest is awfully gynecological.

    February 16, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Double Lover (L'amant double)

  • Dec 22, 2017
    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.
