The Swimming Pool
2 November 1999 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

A writer and his girlfriend spend their virtually happy holiday in a villa on the French Riviera, but with the arrival of their old friend and his young daughter various psychological games begin.

Effective, if derivative psycho-drama of surface calm and overheated passions beneath, with echoes of "Plein Soleil", "Knife in the Water", etc. Good performances and generally skillful handling.
