THE SWIMMING POOL

France 1969: R: Jacques Deray. D: Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, Jane Birkin and Maurice Ronet. 124 min. French version with German subtitles. RATED 16

With ›The Swimming Pool‹ Jean-Claude Carrière presents a glistening film noir. Jacques Deray, the master of the psychological thriller, turned it into a dark chamber play under the shimmering sun of the Côte d'Azur in 1969. In their first collaboration after their separation, Alain Delon and Romy Schneider play lovers Marianne and Jean-Paul on summer vacation. When Marianne's former lover comes to visit with his 18-year-old daughter, psychological and erotic tension rise to immeasurable levels in the languid heat.

Introduction: Dr. Sascha Keilholz
