About Love Crime

Love Crime is a remorseless tale of extreme office politics, played brilliantly by Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. 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.

And all out war certainly ensues. Love Crime is complex, mischievous, surprising and ultimately devastating look on the corporate world, a last magical effort from one of the world's most loved directors.

Love Crime is the final film from Alain Corneau whose career spanned the last four decades of French cinema. His credits include the international hits Série Noire, Nocturne Indien and Tous les matins du monde.

35mm print provided courtesy of Sundance Selects. Not Rated. Running time: 106 minutes. In French and English, with English subtitles.
