REVIEWS RATE: Critics Readers [Rate It]
The final film from director Alain Corneau ("Serie Noire", "Tous Les Matins Du Monde"), "Love Crime" pits the fiery talents of Ludivine Sagnier ("A Girl Cut in Two") and Oscar-nominee Kristin Scott Thomas ("The English Patient") against each other in a deliciously twisted tale of office politics that turn, literally, cut-throat.
When Christine, a powerful executive (Scott Thomas), brings on a naive young ingenue, Isabelle (Sagnier), as her assistant, she delights in toying with her naivete and teaching her hard lessons in a ruthless professional philosophy. But when the protege's ideas become tempting enough for Christine to pass one as her own, she underestimates Isabelle's ambition and cunning - and the ground is set for all out war. In this devilish, propulsive thriller, Corneau sets up a the scenery expertly and his actors devour it.
