    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A good little thriller which has already been remade by Brian Depalma as 'Passion' and whose version I am sure will contain a lot more sex and style.That is not meant in any way to be detrimental to what we have here. Kristin Scott Thomas (always classy) and Ludivine Sagnier are both great as the sparring work colleagues. Friends, and enemies by turn, they are fascinating to watch as the fabric of their relationship unravels. The first hour of the film is compelling and one is engaged in a story that promises more than it ultimately delivers. Events become more puzzling and rather unsatisfactory however, following the demise of Scott Thomas. All along we know what the denouement will be, but the film is so long winded in getting there that a loss of interest is inevitable. The black and white inter cuts do a good job of clarifying things in the second half and the final scene ends on a high. Expand

    I have not seen a French film in years that I liked. At least this one is tolerable, though unbelievable; what the characters say and do did not touch me any in away. At least this time I did not FFWD through as I as waiting for the resolve, the exposure, the truth. But has been said by better, "you can't handle the truth" which is, many French films are over rated. Perhaps there is a certain gene I am missing. Not worth my time but not as bad as the usual French output that gets outstanding American reviews. Collapse

    Ludivine Sagnier movies are always a little off-center and entertaining, and Kristin Scott Thomas is routinely excellent in English or French. This is an odd little movie - much like a TV procedural - but with the absolute worst "fill-in" details surrounding their workplace. They might as well have just referred to everything as widgets and every "other" person a Joe Bloggs. It was laughable- in fact, the crowd did a lot of laughing in this film. But I have a feeling the filmmakers were laughing with us when they wrote and directed it. I had fun - just don't take it too seriously. Expand

    The movie is called Love Crime. But its hidden message has more to do with business than with passion. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Especially one in a power suit, who knows how to work a room.

    This is a ridiculous movie - a thriller so indifferent to suspense, so above mystery that one character literally stabs another in the front.

    Like some murderous version of "Working Girl," the ruthless exec and the seemingly naive underling go at one another - turning the film, at a pivotal moment, into a satisfying whodunit.
