9. LUDIVINE SAGNIER IN SWIMMING POOL (2003)First off, allow us to use this as an excuse to recommend Swimming Pool, a taut and intelligent French thriller that uses its sexiness as a disarming weapon. Flaunting his barely-clothed young star Ludivine Sagnier’s body with minimal reserve, director Francois Ozon lures you in with a foolproof hook (hot blonde in a bikini) and wins you over with the tense and curvy story.
Sagnier is one hell of an attention-grabber, though. Playing the troublemaking daughter of a novelist’s (Charlotte Rampling) publisher, the French model/actress rarely has on little more than a bikini, showing off a tight body that attracts Rampling’s character as much as it does us. Swimming Pool has several shots like the one above, with Ozon’s camera examining Sagnier’s figure like a true voyeur. Can you blame him?
