A loose remake of Alain Corneau's 2010 thriller "Love Crime," the film tracks the relationship between Christine (McAdams), a powerful ad executive, and her shy assistant Isabel (Rapace), which takes on both sexual and dangerous dimensions after Christine steals a campaign that Isabel created. Corporate intrigue just got a whole lot sexier and deadly. This is basically right in De Palma's comfort zone, and we're hoping it's something that revitalizes the filmmaker.
"Passion" hits Venice, TIFF and NYFF (where we nabbed the pics) in that order, but still needs to find a distributor. Images below.
