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

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

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].

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.

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.

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