Brian De Palma's Passion Heads to Blu-ray

Posted March 21, 2013 05:51 PM by Webmaster

ARP SélectionFrench label ARP Sélection has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray director Brian De Palma's latest film Passion (2012), starring Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace, and Karoline Herfurth. The preliminary release date set by the label is June 18th.

Passion, a co-production between Germany and France, is an erotic thriller in the tradition of Dressed to Kill and Basic Instinct. The film tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protegée Isabelle is full of cuttingedge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They're on the same team, after all... Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine's lovers, war breaks out.

Yawn. This looks like a tired American remake of the French film "Crime d'amour" (AKA "Love Crimes"), starring Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas...

Passion is a very official remake of Crime d'amour. Actually, the producer of Alain Corneau's original, Said Ben Said, is also producing this one. The more serious publications in France such as Les inrockuptibles, Les Cahiers du cinema and Positif, gave rave reviews to De Palma's take on the story. I, for one, can't wait to see it.

I saw it and enjoyed it. Although it is not De Palma's best, it does have gorgeous cinematography and an exquisite soundtrack. Nice performance by Rachel McAdams as well. I look forward to seeing it again when it comes out on blu ray.

If the chicks get it on, I'm in. Now... where the hell is De Palma's "Wise Guys" already?!! Can't clear that Springsteen song, huh?

Never heard of this remake. It wasn't reviewed well either. Not worthy of making it to Metacritic, and only 14% like it at Rottentomatoes

I think perhaps a rental first. De Palma isn't quite the filmmaker he used to be.

@discking such an ignorant comment. This film is a French/German production. Not American.
Research before saying stupid things. Also the producer of the original was behind this.

Saw it in theatre last month, and thought it was really awful... It looks very bad (imagine a German TV movie and you know what its image looks like), it's not very well acted (you never believe in the trio of actresses), and there are too many moment when you wish this was not De Palma at the helm ("oh no, he will not do this ?!" followed immediately by "yes he did !...").
And I'm a big fan of De Palma, I even liked "Femme Fatale" !...

Call me crazy, but I'm going to actually see this movie myself and then make my own individual opinion rather than trust critics or, god forbid, Rotten Tomatoes. BRING IT ON.

Sorry. Famous American director + well known American actress + foreign actress now trying to make jump to Hollywood films seems to say "American" to me... The original was so-so French pulp. I would expect that adding De Palma will result in so-so pulp on steroids...

This is part of a pattern recently of European producers taking mid-level projects that were successful in the Euro market and attempting to gain a world wide market for the same story by re-producing (not reproducing) the stories in glossy new English language editions via Hollywood -- "The Killing" and the "Girl With Dragon Tattoo" being two recent examples. This is an "American remake" in the same way that AMC's version of "The Killing" was an American remake, even though the Euro producer of the original was behind "The Killing" also.

None of the actors in this are American.
It is a French/German production, and the creator of the original is behind it.

The French cover is the original, and the english is classified as the International Cover.

So no, you are wrong. This is not a Hollywood remake as TGWTDT. You clearly know nothing about anything.
