Ismael’s Ghosts features a love triangle of powerhouse performers – Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marion Cotillard – in a haunting, anxiety-laden identity thriller from the fertile imagination of writer-director Arnaud Desplechin (Kings and Queen, A Christmas Tale).

Filmmaker Ismaël (Amalric) is in pre-production for his next film based on the life of diplomat, Ivan (Louis Garrel). His happy existence with astrophysicist girlfriend Sylvia (Gainsbourg) is shattered when his past love, Carlotta (Cotillard), mysteriously re-appears after a lengthy absence in which she had been missing, presumed dead.

Little is as it appears to be on the surface in this richly layered and genre-twisting film that keeps the audience guessing until the end. It also marks the seventh collaboration between writer-director Arnaud Desplechin and actor-director Mathieu Amalric, paying testament to the artistic rapport between these two great figures in French filmmaking.


L'amant double

François Ozon returns with L’amant double, a sleek but gleefully irreverent erotic thriller that sees the prolific French auteur ramping up the sexual tension while keeping his tongue firmly in his cheek.
