In typical 1960s French film fashion, love is a dangerous game, mixing fast cars, beautiful legs, jazz and a sparkling swimming pool – all set in the French Riviera in Jacques Deray's 1969 film La Piscine (The Pool), which was just was just rereleased in the UK and is popping up theatrically. Starring Romy Shneider, Alain Delon, Jane Birkin, and Maurice Ronet, La Piscine is a gripping tale of sexual longing that is beautiful to watch.
