Swimming Pool?

Tue Sep 14, 2004 8:29 am

Has anybody seen this movie? I will probably make myself look stupid by asking this rather than just watching it again, but I have no idea what the ending meant. Who was the other girl that came in the last minute? I really don't want to watch it again but I would like to understand it. You don't have to give away the whole thing for those who want to see it, but please explain. Thanks

The way I saw it, most of the action was just a fantasy on the part of the older woman. Remember that she was a fiction writer who had been struggling to come up with new ideas. She somehow fantasized the existence of the sexy young woman and the entire murder plot. The cute but unglamorous young woman at the end was real, she was the publisher's actual daughter. I would say that the point of the movie was that fact and fiction can become intertwined, at least in the mind of a person who creates for a living.

Ok, maybe I was overcomplicating it in my head. I thought there was some relation between the old lady and the daughter, like she was really the mother. It still seems weird to me how it ended. Was the real daughter ever really with her in France? Well, its not that important, I guess. Thanks

Yeah, well maybe that had something to do with me being completely lost as far as the plot goes  Big grin

Who cares about her, what about Charlotte Rampling? 58 years old and she looked better starkers than 90% of women half her age  Smokin cool
