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.

Product Description

Crime d'amour est un film français d'Alain Corneau, sorti en 2010, avec pour interprètes Ludivine Sagnier et Kristin Scott Thomas. C'est le seizième et dernier long-métrage de son réalisateur, mort quelques jours après sa sortie en salles. Elle mène avec succès plusieurs dossiers grâce à sa subordonnée, Isabelle Guérin, qui ne parvient pas à lui tenir rigueur de ce que son rôle est chaque fois minoré. Sa supérieure déploie une relation en apparence très affective et complice avec elle, et se voit en même temps proposer une promotion à New York. Christine Rivière envoie Isabelle à sa place pour une négociation au Caire, où cette dernière commence une liaison avec Philippe Deschamp, l'un des amants de Christine. Isabelle se demande rapidement si elle n'a pas été manipulée, d'autant que sa patronne s'attribue une fois encore ses idées et le succès de cette mission. Une occasion se présente pour Isabelle de briller aux yeux du siège américain, en court-circuitant Christine Rivière. Celle-ci voit sa promotion new-yorkaise reportée et pour se venger va tendre un piège aboutissant à une humiliation publique de la jeune femme. L'affrontement entre les deux femmes sera alors sans merci, la plus jeune et inexpérimentée des deux n'étant pas la moins machiavélique. ******************Love Crime (French: Crime d'amour) is a 2010 French psychological suspense thriller starring Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smart and accessible magnum opus Aug. 15 2011
'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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geordiebert Sept. 12 2011
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.
