[Trailer] – Passion

23 Aug

Brian De Palma had a really underwhelming last decade, but he’s still one of those directors that you have to be really interested in everything he does, and he seems to be jumpstarting this new decade with a material that, coming from him, definitely seems worth a watch. That’s Passion, the trailer for which was just released and you can watch after the cut.

The film is a loose remake of Alain Corneau‘s Love Crime and, as you can see, the first film from the director in five years is just super stylized and looks like sleazy, campy fun.

The film stars Rachel McAdams as a mentor of sorts to her innocent yet smart protégé at a multinational, played by Noomi Rapace. The boss likes to manipulate the assistant, but then when she takes it too far a game of twists begins. The film is playing at the Venice, Toronto and New York festivals in a few weeks so we’ll get word about how its received soon, but this just looks like a great guilty pleasure, with Mr. De Palma and his actresses having so much with the sex and the campiness of it all.

Directed by Brian De Palma; written by Brian De Palma, based on the original screenplay by Natalie Carter and Alain Corneau; starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace.

    I’ve Heard Of This One, And Sincerely Can’t Wait To See It.
    It Does Look Like Vintage De Palma. Like “Dressed To Kill” Type De Palma.
    Like You Said, It’ll Be Worth Checking Out At The Least.
    Thanks For The Trailer!
    I Was Hoping To Catch One Sooner Or Later hehehe

      Vintage De Palma for sure, hopefully the word out of the festival circuit will be good!
