Story


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.
