Product Description

Product Description

Within the sterile offices of a major multinational corporation, two women enter a power struggle rife with sexual tension. Isabelle is a young executive under the orders of Christine, a powerful woman she absolutely idolizes. Confident of her control over Isabelle, Christine leads her into a confusing, perverse game of seduction and domination… a dangerous game that reaches the point of no return.


"A taut psychological thriller." -- James Travers, Films de France

"Scott Thomas and Sagnier are just brilliant." -- Brendan Kelly, Montreal Gazette

Format: DVD
'Crime d'amour' (2010) is a beautifully constructed noir thriller about a young executive's revenge on her wilful and manipulative boss. Director Alain Corneau does a great job of keeping things simple. Almost all of the film's scenes contribute directly to the main plot, a kind of no-nonsense approach that also reflects the corporate business world in which the story is set. The American influence is obvious as the film has the look and feel of a prime time television drama, something Corneau did very well in a terrific earlier film, 'Le nouveau monde' (1995). Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas give superb performances as Isabelle and Christine, respectively, and are probably career bests for both actresses. However, the real key to the film is the clever storyline (written by Corneau and Natalie Carter), especially Isabelle's intricate plot against Christine that the viewer learns about after the fact in black and white flashbacks during the subsequent police investigation. What starts out looking like an ordinary commercial film turns into an intense psychological drama and shows a veteran filmmaker at his best.

I can always rely on Kristin Scott Thomas to make interesting movies, ok SHOPAHOLIC was an exception, but I really enjoyed this one, in fact so much that I put it on again the following evening. I don't want to give away the plot, but it's full of twists and always interesting. It appears nowadays only the french are making movies for discriminating adults. The english subtitles are easily read. Well acted from Miss Scott Thomas and the entire cast, with lots of surprises. I would have normally given this 4 stars but there has been such a death of good movies that it deserves five.
