France’s former enfant terrible François Ozon returns with a deliciously duplicitous tale of psychoanalysis and seduction. Channelling the spirits of Hitchcock and De Palma at their naughtiest, Ozon’s frisky new thriller tells the story of Chloé, a former model plagued by undiagnosed stomach pains. Advised her condition could be psychosomatic, she consults a handsome psychiatrist named Paul, with whom she promptly embarks on a romantic relationship. But Chloé’s new beau is a mysterious fellow, revealing little about his past. When she stumbles across the information that Paul has a twin, she secretly tracks him down, only to discover that this mysterious sibling is also a psychoanalyst. Desperate to uncover the truth, Chloé books herself in for a session. But it is not long before she realizes the two brothers take a very different approach to therapy. Boasting images so lascivious they would make Sigmund Freud blush, Ozon’s provocative, playfully campy adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ novel Lives of the Twins is a wickedly twisted enigma, reminiscent of the director’s earlier thrillers «Criminal Lovers» and «Swimming Pool.» At once coolly clinical and palpably erotic, this heady dose of cinephilic fetishism is guaranteed to get you going, whatever your preference.

Dir. Francois Ozon, 2017, France (In French w/Eng subtitles), 107 min, DCP
