La Piscine

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Jacques Deray
1969 / 124min / DCP

It’s trouble in paradise when lovers Alain Delon and Romy Schneider’s poolside idyll at a St. Tropez villa is interrupted by the arrival of her ex, Maurice Ronet, and his rapidly maturing daughter, Jane Birkin. Beautiful people, ravishing landscapes, and quite a bit of ugly behavior add up to make one of the most cherished of French thrillers, where no amount of time in the water will serve to wash this quartet clean. “Icily erotic! Seething passion and emotional chaos lie beneath the symbolically placid surface of the villa’s swimming pool, which becomes the site for both seduction and violent revenge.”—Dave Kehr, The New York Times Restored in 4K from the original 35mm negative. Restoration supervised by Filmo, commissioned by SND, with the support of the CNC, and approved by Agnès and Laurence Deray.
