Performers, Cast and Crew:
Premiere - 07/01/2003
"...It's worth seeing twice just for the privilege of watching Rampling and Sagnier match each other stroke for stroke..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/11/2003
"...The narrative logic of SWIMMING POOL slips through our hands like cool water, shimmery and light-dappled, leaving behind the pleasures of summer heat and goose bumps..."
Rolling Stone - 07/24/2003
"...It's Sagnier, a young Bardot, who lifts the movie, and Rampling, 58, who gives it nuance..."
New York Times - 07/02/2003
"...As the story takes shape, Mr. Ozon, Ms. Rampling and Ms. Sagnier complicate it in subtle and fascinating ways....Simultaneously a thoroughly mannered, mischievously artificial confection and an acute piece of psychological realism..."
USA Today - 07/03/2003
"With a little sex, some mystery, an appealing lead and a little sex, France's SWIMMING POOL has what it takes to become an art house audience magnet..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/02/2003
"...Rampling doesn't skip a beat. Freed from the burden of likability, the actress pushes the character from near-farce to near-tragedy without once appealing to sentimentalism..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/02/2003
"...A sensuous and deceptive new thriller..."
Box Office - 09/01/2003
"...An entertaining drama, showcasing strong performances from both actresses..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2003
"...The film is ripe with allusions....The ambiguities intensify the picture's hothouse atmosphere, making it all the more impressive that Ozon maintains such a consistently cool touch..."
