Trivia:
Director Alain Guiraudie based the setting of the film - the lake of the title - on a real lake side cruising ground he knew. But he did not film at that exact location and chose a different location that was warmer and sunnier. He specifically picked a beach next to a lake as opposed to one next to a sea because with the sea, the horizon is too far and too wide and he wanted to constrain the setting, so he chose a beach next to a lake instead for a more limited setting, like in a play.

This film tells what goes on among the men cruising by a beautiful lake in the summer, somewhere in France.

"Stranger by the Lake" is a single location film, with all scenes happening in or by the lake. The story focuses on a handsome young man who gets attracted to a dangerous man, putting his life at risk. Then, relationships between them, and a solitary man who sits by the lake gets complicated. Though the pacing is pretty slow in the beginning, the paces accelerates at lightning speed towards the end, delivering much thrills that makes people hold their breath. The ending is left open, but scenes just before the film ends are shocking and almost aggravating, evoking much gasps of horror and shouts of exasperation in the cinema.

Together with the highly explicit scenes, "Stranger by the Lake" is quite an thrilling eye opener that tells the truth in a cruising ground, and how love is completely blind.
