As a result, the reserved beauty will soon find herself on the couch of the charming therapist, Dr Paul Meyer, nevertheless, the mutual and unfailing sexual attraction between them will make it impossible to continue with the therapy. Before long, the ecstatic, yet unexplored lovers will move in together, however, Paul's obscure past will inevitably lead Chloé to the conclusion that there's definitely more to him than meets the eye.

Like a mirror, there's many ways of appreciating this film.
Certainly there are plenty of different opinions in relation to this film, and that is not wrong at all. Art itself is very subjective, and categorizing this film just by the negative reviews a sector of audience has gave it, does not change the fact this film is a great piece of work, denying this would be demeriting the vision (and apparently numerous working hours) the director and all of his crew invested. 'L'amant double' is truly a movie audience should not afford missing, after seeing it then you could properly get your own conclusions, but i guarantee you'll have 1 hour and 50 minutes of a mental, thrilling and an audiovisual experience you would not forget. Personally i consider it a unique psicological thriller with an outstanding photography. P.S. Do not watch this movie if you are not willing to appreciate an uncomfortable work of art.
