    Swimming Pool - 07/02

    From Hollywood.com

    Synopsis: Sarah Morton is a famous British mystery author. Tired of London and seeking inspiration for her new novel, she accepts an offer from her publisher John Bosload to stay at his home in Luberon, in the South of France. It is the off-season, and Sarah finds that the beautiful country locale and unhurried pace is just the tonic for her--until late one night, when John's indolent and insouciant French daughter Julie unexpectedly arrives. Sarah's prim and steely English reserve is jarred by Julie's reckless, sexually charged lifestyle. Their interactions set off an increasingly unsettling series of events, as Sarah's creative process and a possible real-life murder begin to blend dangerously together.

    I loved the movie but I was somewhat confused of the ending. Was Julie Sarah's daughter?
    Please help.

    Anyone see "Swimming Pool" (indie)?

    Care to explain the ending to me?

    i like this movie, but was puzzled at the end, too. i remember thinking that maybe the daughter wasn't actually there: charlotte rampling's character was jealous that the man wasn't coming to france with her, she had writer's block, she was repressed, she created this almost caricatured girl who "carried" all of that split-off sexual energy, but when she started to acknowledge that sexual/creative energy, she didn't need that version of the daughter any more. i thought this both as the movie progressed and because of something in the end, when she encountered the daughter at the office and it was a sweet, english girl who didn't recognize her, but i can't remeber the small but important detail. maybe it was something about that daughter was supposed to have been in france, and the father or the secretary was surprised that she showed up at the office?... the whole story of the vixenish daughter's mother seemed suspect to me, too. but i could be way, way, way off...
