Stranger by the Lake

Alain Guiraudie’s thriller about a lakeside cruising spot is a magnificently staged, hour and a half of nerve shredding drama. It is a piece which owes as much to its surroundings as it does to its leading man and the scenic setting does nothing to alleviate the edge of seat tension that Guiraudie creates in this depiction of love and desire. 298 more words

Lust, sex, violence and death coalesce superbly in French director Alain Guiraudie’s tense, unnerving and erotically-charged thriller Stranger By The Lake. Franck (Pierre Deladonchamps) spends his summer lapping up the sun and sea at a cruising hotspot, where he strikes up a harmless friendship with hermit Henri (Patrick D’Assumçao) and becomes infatuated with Michel (Christophe Paou)

Stranger By the Lake (2013) is a homoerotic crime thriller that moves with ease and quiet. The sex scenes in the woods and the ambiatic sound of the waves and the winds bring a beauty over eeriness over the entire situation. 20 more words
