Another Great French Thriller
In Paris, Christine Rivière (Kristin Scott Thomas) is a tough executive of a French corporation. Her assistant Isabelle Guérin (Ludivine Sagnier) is an intelligent and cunning young woman needy of love and affection. When Isabelle is assigned to travel to Cairo with the lawyer Philippe Deschamps (Patrick Mille) to show her project, her idea is successful and Isabelle and Philippe have one night stand. Back in France, the senior management in the headquarter in Washington congratulates Christine for the project and she does not give the credit to Isabelle. Soon she notes that the manipulative Christine is using her to climb in the corporation. When her secretary Daniel (Guillaume Marquet) shows another project from Washington, Isabelle proposes improvements but does not show them to Christine. They have a meeting with the American executives and Isabelle is congratulated by them. Christine begins a war and humiliates Isabelle first using Philippe that has embezzled a large amount and is in her hands and then in a party. Isabelle plots a scheme and kills Christine at home. However the calculating Isabelle leaves many evidences in the crime scene incriminating herself and does not have an alibi.
“Crime d’amour” is another great French thriller with a good story of ambition, ingratitude and revenge. The two lead actresses, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier, are wonderful and their duel is engaging. The theme, competition in a corporation, is a reality and the viewer will certainly identify characters with real real coworkers or ex-coworkers. The conclusion shows how dangerous is the secretary Daniel. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Crime de Amor” (“Love Crime”)
What goes on inside the glass ceiling
This is the last film directed by the late Alain Corneau, who is most famous for his magnificent film TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE (ALL THE MORNINGS OF THE WORLD) of 1991, which introduced the magic of the viola da gamba to a wider audience than it had ever before known in modern times. (It has a deeper, more resonant, and more mellow sound than the cello, and is my favourite string instrument. Bach’s ‘cello’ works were really written for the viola da gamba. Everyone should hear Paolo Pandolfo’s recording of Bach’s ‘cello suites’ on the proper instrument.) In this last offering of his oeuvre, Corneau explores mortal combat between female business executives, those daring ones who have penetrated the glass ceiling and are now living and struggling inside it. Kristin Scott Thomas plays Christine, a ruthless egotist who will do anything to get what she wants. She is cruel, heartless, narcissistic, and more vicious than a cobra. Working in a position below Christine is Isabelle, played by Ludivine Sagnier, whose evolution during the course of the film from a sweet, trusting creature of traditional femininity into a fighter and a killer is an amazing screen transformation. When Isabelle is publicly humiliated by Christine, she snaps. One of them has to go. The claims that this is a film noir are true. Noir is not dead, and the rare true modern versions of it are often little masterpieces, as this film is. The director does not stray off piste, but keeps us focused on the essentials with relentless determination. We never learn why Isabelle was sweet to begin with, and we never learn why Christine is so heartless. Where they came from, what their early experiences were, how they became what they are, are subjects which are entirely ignored. In this film it is action, action, action. But instead of ‘action’ meaning the ridiculous car crashes and explosions of so many so-called ‘action films’, here we have real human action. With women as the characters, ‘action’ does not have to constitute external phenomena as is the case with men. For women, ‘action’ is the deadly silent conflict between personalities, and how they outwit each other. This is a true ‘psychological thriller’, whereas many claims of that kind are made by films which are not all that psychological. Strategy and tactics are not exclusively male concerns expressed externally through wars. They are just as important to women, expressed internally as quiet, deadly, psychological combat. Watch and learn!
