When I first heard that there was a going to be a scene in the new Brian De Palma ( Carrie, (1976), Scarface (1983), Mission Impossible (1996) ) film where Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace kiss, I actually salivated! Now, getting a glimpse of what the story entails from this teaser gives more insight to this much anticipated intimate encounter between these A-List stars. Passion is a remake of the French film Love Crime (2010), directed by Alain Corneau, starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier as two rivaling corporate executive. In this version, a young businesswoman Isabelle (Rapace) plots murderous revenge against her boss and mentor Christine (McAdams) who steals some of her ideas. By the look of it, it could either be extremely good or just plain corny. The French has a way to make these kind of stories work without losing credit, hopefully the Americans can bring do the same and bring some justice to the original. De Palma wrote and directed the film, so I'm crossing my fingers that it will be somewhat entertaining...? Hopefully.
