STRANGER BY THE LAKE

DIRECTOR: Alain Guiraudie - FRANCE

Franck is a regular at a secluded lakeside beach, a popular hotspot for gay men to sunbathe in the nude and sneak off for casual sex in the nearby woods. On the first day of the season, he spots the rugged, mustachioed Michel and is infatuated. Even after Franck witnesses Michel commit a sudden and shocking crime, it only serves to deepen Franck’s carnal attraction to the stranger, and the two men descend into a truly dizzying bout of amour fou. Filmmaker Alain Guiraudie’s tense, erotic, and lurid thriller won the top directing prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival. “A bold and painterly meditation on longing, lust, intimacy, and fear, Stranger by the Lake exhibits a confident stylistic fortitude that lingers long after its secrets are laid bare.”—AFI Film Festival. (97 mins.)

Filmography: No Rest for the Brave (03), The King of Escape (09).

Recommended for adult audiences only.

Sponsored by the Consulate General of France and French American Cultural Society, San Francisco, and TV5Monde.
