Double Lover
aka L'amant double
First screened in February 2018
Director: François Ozon. Cast: Marine Vacth, Jérémie Renier, Myriam Boyer, Jacqueline Bisset, Fanny Sage, Dominique Reymond, Antoine de La Morinerie, Jean-Paul Muel, Jean-Édouard Bodziak. Screenplay: François Ozon and Philippe Piazzo (based on the novel Lives of the Twins by Joyce Carol Oates).

Twitter Capsule: Ozon never found a corner he couldn't paint himself into. This one starts out snazzily, ends more tackily than usual.

VOR:   Vigorously scripted, in a somewhat tarty way, before ending as you'd expect, or worse. Actors put on a good show. Nothing else is memorable at all.
