What's liberating here is the film's lack of inhibitions, which absolves the guilt without compromising the pleasure.

It's like the wildest Frasier episode they never made, and hits all the parts - sometimes literally - the Fifty Shades of Grey films couldn't hope to reach.

Spins its influences into a frenzy that ultimately reveals the story to be very much its own thing. And a crazy, and eventually strangely moving, thing it is.

The softcore silliness and lite-erotic stylings of François Ozon’s horribly middleweight psycho-suspense thriller may yet give it camp classic status.

Double Lover quickly descends into a psychodrama of such committed dementedness I found myself liking it a great deal more than I probably should have.

There are plenty of elements to admire in Amant Double but the endless twists and revelations grow tiresome.

Francois Ozon's good twin/bad twin thriller puts dull Hollywood twaddle like Fifty Shades Freed to shame with its wild, wanton ride into the subconscious. Prepare for a mindblower.

What gives the film its surprising coherence is not only the fluidity of Ozon's technique but also his mastery of tone, the ease with which he applies serious craft to a resolutely un-serious endeavor.

A film that's made with serious craftsmanship but never takes itself seriously.
