At Oxford, Austrian student Anna von Graz (Jacqueline Sassard) is dating fellow student William (Michael York), whom she plans to marry, but she ends up sleeping with two unhappily married Oxford professors instead.
Catherine and David, she a doctor, he a professor, are at first glance the perfect couple. Happily married with a talented teenage son, they appear to have the perfect life. But when David misses a flight and his surprise birthday party, Catherine's long simmering suspicions rise to the surface. Suspecting infidelity, she decides to hire an escort to seduce her husband and test his loyalty. Catherine finds herself 'directing' Chloe's encounters with David, and Chloe's end of the bargain is to report back, the descriptions becoming increasingly graphic as the meetings multiply.
This film was solely financed by the French company StudioCanal, which had entirely recouped this film's budget via international pre-sales (before this film's first festival screening). See more »
When Michael is talking to Anna via video-conferencing during their break-up, he minimizes the video-chat when he notices his mother (Catherine) peeking in to see what is going on, except when the camera angles change and he is shown running to close the door, the video-chat window is still shown on the computer screen.

How do you do this?
I try to find something to love in everybody. Even if it's a small thing. Something about the way someone smiles. There's always something. There has to be. I try to make myself generous. I do things I don't wanna do. I think about what not to criticise. And the strangest things come back to me.

This film is about a doctor who suspects her husband to be cheating. She hires a prostitute to test her suspicion, which spirals out of control beyond anyone's imagination.
If there is a sub-genre called sexual thriller, "Chloe" would be the prototype. The plot works very well, it's very engaging. The sexual mystery and tension are captivating, and the copious nudity does not even come across as over the top or contrived. Just as you thought you guessed the whole plot, it twists in the most dramatic way. There is so much suspense, excitement and mystery to the story. "Chloe" is a very good film with a wow factor, that keeps me glued to the screen.
