La Piscine

Jacques Deray’s 1969 classic La Piscine is set in a magnificent villa near a sun-drenched St. Tropez, where Jean-Paul (Alain Delon) and Marianne (Romy Schneider) are spending a happy, lazy summer holiday. Their only concern is to gratify their mutual passion – until the day when Marianne invites her former lover and his beautiful teenage daughter to spend a few days with them. From the first moment, a certain uneasiness and tension begin to develop between the four, which soon escalates in a dangerous love-game.

“Jacques Deray’s languid thriller from 1969 is a tour de force of sexual longing and controlled suspense”

A Bigger Splash

A rock star finds her love nest vacation interrupted by a visit from her record producer friend (and old flame), accompanied by his sexy daughter.

This is often a seriously fun film with a shadier side that’s ripe for unpicking when the curtain drops
