A summer haze permeates this beguiling story of a woman and her double. While visiting Athens, Greece, Elsa sees someone who looks exactly like her, then proceeds to spot her around town and eventually across Europe into France. Along the way, she swims in the Mediterranean, loses herself in crowds, and stumbles into erotic encounters as her sense of self becomes more permeable. In Levy’s hands, this ontological mystery is a sensual delight.
