Trouble in the Water

Trouble in the Water

2 Episodes

Languid days by swimming pools give way to intrigue and mystery in a pair of wet, hot summertime spellbinders. It’s just another afternoon at the local pool for a bored young girl until a pair of unexpected strangers arrive to set her imagination afire with yakuza-fueled fantasies in Kimi Takesue’s subtly surreal, senses-tingling short SUMMER OF THE SERPENT. Sun-splashed ennui takes a significantly darker turn in Jacques Deray’s ultrastylish suspense classic LA PISCINE, with Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, and Jane Birkin as the impossibly beautiful vacationers whose erotically charged holiday on the Côte d’Azur erupts in shocking violence.
