Story


Frank (Pierre Deladonchamps) spends his summer days hopelessly searching for companionship at a popular cruising spot on the shores of a lake in rural France. One day, he meets Michel (Christophe Paou), an attractive yet darkly mysterious man, and falls blindly in love. When a death occurs, Frank and Michel become the primary suspects, but they choose to ignore the dangers and instead continue to engage in their passionate and potentially lethal relationship. "Stranger by the Lake" is an erotic thriller that tests the lengths and limits of sexual desire.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..from a single setting, a lakeside gay cruising spot, and an old theme - the link between sex and death..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
“..the film exhibits a welcome streak of offbeat humour throughout, including a hapless voyeur whose advances are constantly and cruelly rejected..”
by Bruce Demara [Toronto Star]
“..the movie is voyeuristic, sure, but in a way that evokes Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window more than William Friedkin's Cruising..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
