The Swimming Pool would have been a memorable film even if every scene featuring Alain Delon and Romy Schneider did not echo the tribulations of their own lives and love affair, even if the ultimate futility of their relationship was not evident for all to see. Marianne (Romy Schneider) appearing in a two-piece black swimsuit is as attractive in the early scenes as anyone in film history. The couple’s idyllic existence is upended by the appearance of an unexpected guest. Harry, Marianne’s former lover, turns up with his daughter, played by none other than Jane Birkin. There is no doubt that this film is the wellspring of all later erotic thrillers; it stars Romy Schneider, who died 40 years ago, giving one of her best performances
