Critic Reviews for Double Lover

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…
  • Were L'Amant Double the work of any other film-maker - one without the credible female-oriented pictures 8 Women and Swimming Pool on his CV - it would make for unimaginatively troubling viewing.

    June 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Saucy and silly, L'Amant Double is a disappointingly superficial romp, with interesting psychological potential squandered by B-movie levels of nonsense. Identity crises all round.

    June 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There is an obvious debt to David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers. But the skin-tingling subversion of the erotic thriller premise is all Ozon.

    June 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Double Lover] has been billed as an 'erotic thriller' but as it is, in fact, a rape-culture fantasy dressed up as one, I found it about as erotic as descaling the kettle, say. Also, it felt 90 years long.

    May 31, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Say 'bonjour' to that rare joy of joys, a film that hits the sweet spot between classy art house and erotic trash.

Audience Reviews for Double Lover

  • 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.
