The Movie “Swimming Pool” Storyline Drama Romance Film Review – Bull Source

“She gave me a look that I caught in my pocket,” Robert Mitchum’s private eye said of Charlotte Rampling’s femme fatale in “Farewell, My Lovely” (1975). You don’t know what it means, but you know exactly what it means. Rampling has always had the aura of a woman who knows things you’d like to do that you haven’t even thought of. She played daringly sexual roles early in her career, such as in ‘The Night Porter’ (1974), and now, in ‘Swimming Pool’, a sensual and deceptive new thriller, she becomes fascinated by a young predator.

Rampling plays Sarah Morton, a British writer whose novels seem to exist somewhere between those of PD James and Ruth Rendell. Now she is tired and uncertain, and her editor offers her a vacation at his French villa. She gratefully goes home, shops in the nearby village, finds that she can write again. She is alone, with the exception of a taciturn guardian, who enters the village at night to live with his daughter, a dwarf who seems older than him.

Then comes an unexpected visitor: Julie (Ludivine Sagnier), the girl her publisher didn’t think to tell her about. Sarah is annoyed. His privacy has been violated. His intimacy and his sense of decorum. Julie is full of confidence in her burgeoning sexuality, appears topless at the villa pool, brings home men to sleep with – men who have nothing in common except Julie’s willingness to take them in . Sarah is surprised, intrigued, disapproving, curious. She looks out the tall windows, spying on the girl who seems so indifferent to her opinion. Eventually, she even steals glimpses from the girl’s diary. Read also Rodeo Streaming VF

There’s a waiter in town, named Franck (Jean-Marie Lamour), who Sarah has chatted with, and who may not be unaware of his enduring sexuality. But he also becomes one of Julie’s conquests – perhaps because Julie senses the older woman’s interest in him.

At this point the movie Revoir Paris Streaming VF takes a turn towards violence, guilt, panic, deception and cover-up, and I won’t take the turn with it, because a movie like this has to be allowed to do whatever it wants with you. Let’s say that François Ozon, the director and co-screenwriter (with Emmanuele Bernheim), understands like Hitchcock the small steps by which a bad decision grows in its error into a terrifying paranoid nightmare. And how there’s nothing more disturbing than trying to cover up a crime just waiting to be exposed.

There’s a moment’s delay in the movie Beast Streaming VF which displays Rampling’s cool boldness more than any other. The Guardian is about to investigate something that is better left uninvestigated. What she does to surprise and distract him I won’t allude to, but what a startling moment and what audacity of Rampling! Ozon is a director specializing in films where the absent disturbs more than the present. Rampling starred in his “Under the Sand” (2000), a film about a seemingly drowning husband and a wife who simply refuses to accept the possibility. He also directed the terrifying 57-minute film ‘See the Sea’ (1997), in which the mother of an infant befriends a young female hitchhiker and begins to feel it was a dangerous mistake. .

“Swimming Pool” is more of a conventional thriller than those two – or if it’s unconventional, it’s a development that doesn’t affect the telling of most of the story. When finished, you will want to go back and think again, and I can help you by suggesting that there is one, and only one, interpretation that solves all the difficulties, but if I told you, you should kill me.
