Swimming Pool

 

In this psychological thriller, Rampling plays Sarah Morton, a British crime writer who goes to her publisher’s beautiful holiday house in the South of France for the solitude she needs to complete her book. Sarah’s peace is interrupted by the arrival of Julie (Ludivine Sagnier) who claims to be the publisher’s daughter… The intentionally ambiguous ending sparked controversy with audiences. Ozon himself has stated ‘everything that is imaginary in Swimming Pool is realistic so that you see it all – fantasy and reality alike - on the same plane’. Rampling; at the height of her powers.
