I could be wrong, but methinks Brian De Palma’s latest, “Passion” is going out of its way to sell the tantalizing sex appeal of its two stars, Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace. Not only the ladies themselves, but the prospect of the ladies together. And I mean together together. If you know what I mean, and I think you do. Check out some official images from the film, which is currently doing the Cannes Cannes dance over there in Frogland.
The offices of a prominent multinational corporation is the setting for this story of a power struggle between two contemporary women. Isabelle has unlimited admiration for her direct superior, Christine, a woman well-schooled in the ways of power. Christine enjoys holding sway over Isabelle, leads her one step at a time and ever more deeply into a game of seduction and manipulation, of dominance and servitude. The game is played for keeps, and there is no turning back.
Besides the two ladies, the film co-stars Dominic Cooper, Paul Anderson, Karoline Herfurth and Rainer Bock.
“Passion” is actually a remake of the 2010 French film “Love Crime”, starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. I guess De Palma saw something about the film that he really liked, and decided to remake it with two Hollywood stars.
