François Ozon is a French film director and screenwriter. Ozon is considered one of the most important modern French filmmakers. His films are characterized by aesthetic beauty, sharp satirical humor and a free-wheeling view of human sexuality. Recurring themes in his films are friendship, sexual identity, different perceptions of reality, transience and death. Ozon has achieved international acclaim for his films 8 femmes (2002) and Swimming Pool(2003). He is considered one of the most important directors in the new “New Wave” in French cinema, as well as a group of French filmmakers associated with a cinema du corps (“cinema of the body”).
“A sober, unsentimental treatment of a rather thorny subject matter. One of Ozon’s best.” ~ Linda Maric, The Jewish Chronicle
