Cinéma sous les étoiles
“La Piscine”, by Jaques Deray (1969)
A former real-life couple Alain Delon and Romy Schneider are re-united on screen in this compelling psychological drama, one of Jacques Deray’s best known films in France that still remains essentially unknown in the US. The film revolves around a dangerous love triangle, with virtually the entire action taking place either in or by an outdoor swimming pool in a villa. (Dave Kehr, The New York Times)
Jean-Paul and his wife Marianne live a peaceful and rich life in Saint Tropez, in the South of France. Their quiet summer is suddenly disrupted when Harry and his daughter arrive. The ambiance becomes tense and tension rises when Jean-Paul seduces Pénélope induces deadly consequences next to the swimming-pool.
