Synopsis


Passion
An intense power struggle between an icy advertising executive and her timid assistant turns deadly in director Brian De Palma's stylish remake of Alain Corneau's Love Crime (2010). A cultivated beauty with expensive tastes and a serious kinky streak, Christine (Rachel McAdams) holds a top office at one of the world's biggest international advertising agencies. She didn't get ahead by shrinking into the shadows, so when her coy but incredibly creative assistant Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) dreams up a wildly popular marketing campaign, Christine takes full credit for the idea. Simultaneously repulsed and intrigued by her boss' shameless candor over the incident, Isabelle ignites an all-out war by sleeping with Christine's lover. Later, when Christine turns up dead after humiliating her assistant in front of the entire company, the perceptive Inspector Bach (Rainer Bock) struggles to sort through the clues as Isabelle grows increasingly unstable and her story seems to change with each new interview. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Humorous take on the erotic thriller

    Based on the first trailer, I was expecting a serious film. As it turns out, "Passion" is actually an homage to a particularly cheesy erotic thriller. With a really typical plot line, they comically play up all the cliches amidst an array of saturated colors and luxe-on-the-cheap backdrops. I only recommend it for fans of the director, McAdams and/or Rapace. Also worth noting is the all-red case - it's a cool, unique touch in a library of blue blu ray cases.

    I think you either like Brian De Palma or you don't..... I do. This is a decent example of his craft. Rachel McAdams stars in a role very different from the usual characters she plays ......... this one is conniving, devious, and nasty. Noomi Rapace is her assistant at the ad agency they work for. Not going to say much more to tip off the plot. I enjoyed this one.... might not be everyone's cup of tea though.

    I was disappointed with this movie as it had two actresses that have made good choices in the roles that they take. This movie just didn't live up to any expectations that I had. Expected at least suspenseful coming from Brian De Palma. Rent the movie instead.

    The actors were awesome but the plot was a wee bit slow and the extra features were not there very much. Awesome actors but the plot was a wee bit slow and i was hoping for more. But the actors again made it worth seeing.

    This movie is based on the French film Love Crime, is the ending basically the same like soap opera with the last minute twist. If you like Brian De Palma's films I say this is a pulpy thriller.

    I ran across this in the store (it was cheaper than the DVD, so I went with the Blu Ray) and almost by the cover alone bought it. Great actresses and the suspense keeps you hooked until the end.

    Bought this because I'd heard it might have some steamy scenes with Rachel McAdams...actually a good movie! Both Noomi Rapace and Rachel do great jobs making it a worthwhile watch!
