Love Crime

Ongoing

Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) star in this French thriller, a remorseless tale of extreme office politics. Isabelle (Sagnier) is the young ingénue assistant, while Christine (Scott Thomas) is the older woman, a senior executive in a multinational company doing deals around the world. At first they are friendly. Christine, the able executive, is happy to pass the grunt work along to the up-and-coming Isabelle as she learns the ropes. But when Christine starts to take credit for Isabelle’s ideas, and a fellow worker bee begins to fuel Isabelle’s growing doubts about Christine’s duplicitous “all-for-one” attitude, the ground is prepared for all out war.

Love Crime is a complex, mischievous, surprising and ultimately devastating look on the corporate world, a last magical effort from one of the world’s most loved directors. Stephen Holden wrote about the film when it played at Rendez Vous with French Cinema: “Diabolical. A vicious psychological cat-and-mouse game. The movie plays like an entire season of Damages compressed into about 100 nasty minutes.”
