Reviews and Quotes 2

“ICILY EROTIC! 
Seething passion and emotional chaos lie beneath the symbolically placid surface of the villa’s swimming pool,
which becomes the site for both seduction and violent revenge.”
— Dave Kehr, The New York Times

“Romy Schneider’s crowning cinematic moment, where she delivered her most enchanting onscreen performance.”
— Manon Garrigues, Vogue Paris

“Erotic languor turns gradually into fear and then horror in this gripping and superbly controlled thriller... 
The pool is a primordial swamp of desire, a space in which there is nothing to do but laze around, furtively looking at semi-naked bodies.”
— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
