François Ozon फ्रांस, 2003

ig_____or's rating of the film Swimming Pool

What was real? What wasn't? Towards the end things did get very surreal, and I really could feel that some twist was coming, but I expected that it would leave me with more definitive conclusions. But I didn't mind this sort of open-ending at all: what an excellent film! It was never obvious, never predictable, never boring. Charlotte Rampling was brilliant, and so was the whole story... within the story!
