A critical and commercial sensation at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Stranger by the Lake is a captivating and seductive blend of beauty, eroticism and suspense. In a picturesque lakeside cruising spot in southern France, men sunbathe nude and hunt for anonymous sexual encounters in the nearby forest. Handsome young romantic Franck develops relationships with two contrasting men: Henri, an older, portly man and Michel, a muscular and dangerous object of desire. Part beguiling love story, part noir murder mystery, Stranger by the Lake is a provocative and accomplished effort by one of France's most overlooked auteurs.
