Great stuff Todd - and thanks for the still from PISCINE - I watched the whole of A BIGGER SPLASH, really liked it, and only reading the end credits did I realise it was a remake of the Schneider/Delon movie - sad what happens when you get old ....

Middle age is bad enough thus. But this is hardly one of the more prominent, even if apparently one of the most utterly stylish, films in the resumes of many of its principals...I hadn't heard of THE BIG SPLASH till now. Do they make a good double feature, or triple, with SWIMMING POOL or THE SWIMMER?
