Aro Recommended Swimming Pool


France 2003,
Dir. Francois Ozon
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Suspense/Crime, Drama


Aroview: A beguiling psychological thriller, in which a British mystery-novelist (Rampling) travels to her publisher's holiday house in rural France for a break, but finds provocation and conflict with his sexually-preoccupied young daughter.

Within the placid, sunlit confines of the summer-house setting, a strangely symbiotic relationship develops between them - and Rampling begins to write her unwanted companion into her latest novel... Seductively filmed, this accesses a shifting scenario similiar to Roman Polanski's films, with a similiar use of 'watery' symbols and undercurrents of sexual competition.
