Love Crime trailer looks fantastic
The new trailer for Love Crime, aka Crime d'amour, really does deliver the promise of a powerful psychological thriller with two powerful female leads, and one of my favourite actresses Kristin Scott Thomas.
Directed by Alain Corneau who co-wrote with Nathalie Carter, the film stars the fantastic and gorgeous Thomas pitted against Ludivigne Sagnier, and this multi-lingual trailer really does deserve your attention.
Here's the blurb for Crime d'amour or Love Crime as it is now known.
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.
It promises to be a powerful thriller and as you watch the trailer you'll see a healthy amount of quotes saying just that, and then some. It has a great set-up in such a short space of time, and I'm really keen to try and get my hands on it.
Love Crime is being touted on Apple Trailers with a release date of September 22nd, and you can see it right here.
It's a shame that the director Alain Corneau died so soon after the film and won't see what could become of it, not only the building releases, since it's only seen Belgium, France, Hungary, New Zealand and Greece, but also the potential remake.
You might remember that back in January there was word that Brian De Palma was set to remake the film, but not in the typical Hollywood style as you might expect, back then the talk was of using European funding and making it in Britain. Perhaps that might help it turn out closer to the original, but then why not just keep the original?
