L’AMANT DOUBLE (DOUBLE LOVER), François Ozon’s latest film, is an intriguing and inventive erotic thriller with decidedly De Palma-esque overtones. Unfortunately, the recent UK Blu-ray release from Curzon Artificial Eye leaves a lot to be desired: for some inexplicable reason, it runs at 25 fps, and on my player exhibits constant unsightly stair-stepping artefacts. The French release by France Télévisions Distribution, pictured here, has superior image quality but unfortunately doesn’t include English subtitles. For English speakers, the US release by Cohen Media Group might prove to be best option.
