Feel sorry for Ozone in light of its recent films: it is not lost the knack of the Director, it movies are interesting and nice to look at, but with stories not horribly wrong — last good luck — "Young and beautiful", here, as and "the New girlfriend" — outright failure. Ozone decided the year ago, even on a remake of — I must say worthy, but still a remake.

The weakest point of the "two faced lover" — this is a showdown, to the climax I have so many questions — and the answers Ozone gives only those who have long hinted. An inexperienced viewer may confused, disappointed, but if you read a very well-veiled hints, it catharsis is happening.

"Lover" quietly snuck in the Cannes competition and also hush showed himself, like the quota for wife — even the website of the Ozone in the spring about it is not were no words. Himself the Director said that this film is very different from that he did before, but frankly, in the old days, every next film was event, changing the strategy of the Frenchman.

But I still waiting for the stars again become as necessary — and ogonowski camera on the light will be a new masterpiece.

Overall impression: the Emotion that haunted me at view — disgust, as hand in the mud, and film, I wanted to wash away it to forget, but did you forget the erotic Thriller? Exactly right genre of this "masterpiece". As fit all in order to realized is a movie to watch not worth it? Rather, it is easy K. there were people and critics who watch the film went to Cheers! Scenario the plot of the original and would be silly, it is wrong to deny the skill of the Director. Much work has been done in order for the story to breathe weirdness with special character Creator. Because françois Ozon — gay. And the film is that plus seasoned by satire. The plot is a free adaptation of the novel "twins Life", and freestyle times, so the book is very much rather taken the idea, the rest is the portrayal of man and his predatory sexuality with a silly.

The plot is cleverly confuses the audience, it is very difficult to guess what happens to the screen, we can think of ourselves, but in fact the story is blurred. While watching you my viewers share two camp. First — nibble your nails from the intrigue, and second will have to wait what is the story of a crazy woman over, i.e., the usual interest. I the second camp. A story not ended, left us Ozone have nothing, with mocking and and at the end. Quote "think out yourself, I explain I will, ha ha!" F. Ozone.

Clear as day of Francois laughing in the face to all women of the world, showing that we of this world. But I him I agree, the Director pushed me away with your style and twisted mind. All we are people-people and nobody alien weirdness, but if the plot of the original, and idea disgusting, I'm not going to sing odes and praise of the Director. Some of the sex scenes gave me an abomination, not because filmed so, and so filed. However, at the beginning of the tape with you realize the picture is not that simple. With first frame shows that the heroine before us like a clean slate, no secrets, but in fact, absolutely not so. But I thought this is a fun movie... Some scenes in the movie were metaphorical and were replaced by other animate objects that does not very nice.

Actors: starringMarina Waqt (Chloe) jérémie Renier (Paul/Louie) — excellent work of talented people. Of course, all the game is not all game. Artists like were getting really close to sexually, lived their roles, so I wasn't on its own, because not watching a movie and someone's life. But support caused by I thought Waqt older than Rainier, but no, hit me with the appearance of Marina.

Result: 1 points for scenario 1 points for direction 1 points for the acting, total 3. In soul minus-10. Anyone not recommend this picture it not worth the time, but if you still curious, I you've been warned.

"I" primarily physical, it is not only a being with the surface, but itself is a projection of the surface". Sigmund Freud

After watching the new film Francois Ozon "two faced lover", it may seem that the protagonist of the painting is his body new Muse — actress Marina Waqt, which played the role of a young, seeking psychological help, girls. And what is the role of the viewer is actually in the to enjoy the beauty and grace of this body on its background of obscure relations with different kind of psy — specialists: psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, and of course cats.

Perhaps Ozone and pursued this target, because as he once told it is important to make a film in which will play the actress, "from which it is impossible to look away", and the body of the protagonist is really enough. But what can mean an abundance of physicality on the screen? What if the Director's body of the main character — just the surface, the way to tell about her complicated inner world, to understand in which Ozone and sends each of us?

From the very first frame body Chloe will be the route which will unfold the main events of the film. The body of Chloe — the scenario of Ozone. The body of Chloe — the script of her own life. It bodily symptom — pain belly — launch all the film. And if the beginning of the story we hear Chloe asks — first, the gynecologist and then psychotherapist — "Why sick to my stomach?", it over time, this question begins to sound in new ways "What I have really hurt?"

To some extent, everything that happens with Chloe — projection of her body history: "male twins" are a reflection not only of internal processes (split in her love life), but as turned and processes occurring in her body. In Chloe as if there is an intuitive understanding of its history, which she can only be felt and which can only only guess, but she up the end to formulate and to understand.

This causes that imperceptibly for itself it plays the story of their origin in relations with Floor Louis (both brothers played by actor jérémie Renier). These the relationship becomes an imaginary stage, on which the unfolding events of life and fantasy Chloe. And you can argue a lot with Ozone: what this story is the reason and that — consequence, the main still is that Chloe learns its history, and many counterparts go to oblivion.

"Two faced lover" in many respects is a repetition of previous paintings of Ozone, however, this film is peculiar and some novelty. It should be noted a great number of visual, new techniques, great music Philippe Rombi. In this work the author explores the new one for topic — the relationship between the body and the soul, the formation of the human "I" as a reflection of the body surface, and it copes with set before him task.

Ozone in many respects remains faithful to his style, blurring the line between reality and imagination, life and dream, tragedy and Comedy, inner and outer, body and soul, female and male. His tongue films always disturbs usual perception, calls into question any manifestation of uniqueness, bypassed by a causal link. He extols the world of imagination, a world that has over a man of greater power than the world  - called reality.
