L’Amant double

Disenchanted with the ephemeral glamour of the modelling world, Chloé, a vulnerable Parisian woman of 25, is convinced that the severe and persistent abdominal pains she’s been suffering, stem mainly from a psychosomatic disorder. As a result, the reserved beauty will soon find herself on the couch of the charming therapist, Dr Paul Meyer, nevertheless, the mutual and unfailing sexual attraction between them will make it impossible to continue with the therapy. Before long, the ecstatic, yet unexplored lovers will move in together, however, Paul’s obscure past will inevitably lead Chloé to the conclusion that there’s definitely more to him than meets the eye. Is the doe-eyed woman lured into a world of hallucinations and dream-like sequences?

“‘Double Lover’… spins its influences into a frenzy that ultimately reveals the story to be very much its own thing. And a crazy, and eventually strangely moving, thing it is.” -New York Times

“What’s liberating here is the film’s lack of inhibitions, which absolves the guilt without compromising the pleasure.” -Variety
