During the course of this minute, emotionally-turbulent experience, Egoyan doesn't ask any easy questions or propose any pat answers. This is film making at its most powerful:
Production[ edit ] The film was the first film produced by the director Atom Egoyan which was not written by himself. The entire film production time is only 37 days.
The film was shot in Toronto and Lake Ontario. In describing her view of Catherine's relationship with Chloe, Moore noted "an emotional quality to their intimacy that has to do with their conversation and their basic receptivity to one another. Now what they turn into personally obviously is very different.
They are having completely subjective experiences, but that doesn't mean [they're] not incredibly receptive to one another and it clearly creates something in-between them. And that's what love and sex and intimacy and all that is.

Those repeated laces, laces, structures and decorations are also mirrored images. The effect is the same as showing the heart of a character. In addition, the relationship between clothing and the external environment has also been deliberately taken care of.
In the film, Chloe's scene in the greenhouse was decorated with a lot of leaves and patterns on the clothes she wore, which could reflect some of her inner unrest.
Similarly, Catherine's clothes are in part echoed by Chloe's clothing, and their relationship in the film is complex and subtle. In the wake of Chloe, Egoyan had since received many scripts of erotic thrillers.
The disc includes an audio commentarymaking-of featurette, and deleted scenes. Several months following the DVD and Blu-ray release of Chloe, Egoyan said that Chloe had made more money than any of his previous films.
