You can’t really get more French than this raw, claustrophobic chamber piece that traces the story of a disintegrating relationship in reverse. What gives the film its haunting power is Swimming Pool director François Ozon’s intuitive grasp of the fundamental discontent that prevents this flawed couple from saving their romance, aided and abetted by a pair of subtle performances that shun easy sympathy.
