| sincerest form of flattery
Chloé is 25 and alone. Her only friend is her cat. She quit the modeling world and is struggling to find other work. Her physical ailments are diagnosed as psychosomatic and gets sent to psychiatrist Dr Paul Meyer. She gets better. They fall in love and she moves in with him. She discovers some disturbing facts and starts seeing double. Jacqueline Bisset plays duo mother roles. Other actors also play duo roles.

The themes and the concepts remind me of Dead Ringers. Director François Ozon is doing a similar story even down to the gynecology and Cronenberg's body horror style. I assume this to be a work of love. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. He does throw in a big twist at the end. I really like the absorption idea but I do not like the hallucination idea. It wipes away most of the movie. It's all a dream and the movie is not better for it. It would be much better to keep both ideas. The ending should be Chloé in prison dealing with all her losses and caring for an imaginary baby.
