You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), French ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), French ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Demi Moore stars in this unusual psychological drama about two women caught between reality and imagination. Marie (Moore) is an American widow trying to raise two children under difficult circumstances in a small town in France. Marty (also played by Moore) is a successful businesswoman in New York City who wants to leave her busy life and lead a quieter existence in Europe. But Marty is just a product of Marie's imagination -- or at least that's what Marie thinks. Marty, on the other hand, is convinced that Marie is just someone she dreamed up. Who is right? Or are both of them wrong? And where does it leave the men in their lives (Stellan Skarsgard and William Fichtner)? Passion of Mind was the first English-language film from French director Alain Berliner, best known for the arthouse success Ma Vie en Rose. ...Passion of Mind

Format: DVD
This film got spanked righteously in the press and Demi Moore, leading lady, earned a Golden Raspberry (not a compliment) for starring in it.
But was this film as bad as the critics made it out to be? I certainly don't think so. While it is true the dialog was somewhat mundane and the leading men unsexy, the film really seemed to focus on the question of "what is reality?"
The premise of a woman who fragments her personality in her dreams to the point of psychotic delusion is fascinating. Fully functional when awake in either world, at first it is hard to tell which woman, New York Marty or Provence Marie, is the "real" one. But the director carefully controls the colors and temperature of the light. At first, Provence is sunny, warm and misty, New York is blue and cold. Even the skin tones of the actors change with the venue. But as Marty/Marie begins to integrate her personality, the colors shift in the cinematography. Moore is careful not to overact--her Marie or Marty is rather equivocal in her madness or sane-ness. Perhaps the critics wanted more ravings from her.
This is a cerebral film; no mad fugues with wild yelling and screaming and blood and guts. Instead, you have to see if you can psychoanalyse the fragmented mind of Marty/Marie and come up with a plausible explanation. If you get it right, you meet the end of the film with cries of "Ha, I knew it!" If you don't get it right, you get a pleasurable surprise. Either way, a fascinating psychological drama and well worth viewing.

I first saw this movie on a flight from Denver to Boston. You know what they say about in-flight movies. But I was fortunate enough to see it again....this time without the background noise of a jet, or the numbing feeling of being stuck in an aisle seat. Fortunately too, I saw it in HD. This is a beautifully photographed movie - with visuals that are simple, and at the same time, utterly stunning. The writing is top notch. You will be confused, bewildered, awe-struck - and then ultimately.....well....I don't want to give it away. This is a keeper. While you may not want to watch it more than once per year...it's a keeper.

How much one enjoys this film depends greatly on how much of Demi Moore you can stand. If you like long drawn out schmaltzy romances with Demi as the romantic heroine, you will love this film times two. Otherwise, hide any weapons lest you begin attacking your screen.
This film was toasted by the critics, but I didn't think it was that bad. In fact, I liked it. I guess I fall more into the first (sucker for schmaltz) category. The story was criticized as being a contrived version of "Me, Myself and I", where a woman is torn over the choice between life as a professional and the family shtick. That criticism really misses the point. This is a story about a woman's psychological attempt to deal with her traumatic past and has nothing whatever to do with lifestyle choices.
I found this to be an intelligent and complex character study of a woman who seems to be two people living two lives, but really isn't. If that seems cryptic, see the film and it might become clearer. When she goes to sleep from her life with her children in France, she wakes up to her high-powered career in New York and vice versa. She can't determine which is real and which is a fantasy. She has a lover in each life and both seem very real to her. As the story unfolds, she and we try to figure out which is her real life and which is the dream.
The trouble with the presentation is that its real intrigue lies with the psychodrama. Unfortunately, neophyte director Alain Berliner pushed that element to the background and cranked up the schmaltz machine, centering the story on the romances instead. That wouldn't have been so bad if they weren't so interminable. Scene after scene retraced the same romantic theme, until it became frayed.
Other than the misplaced emphasis, the film was well crafted.

Demi Moore was so ubiquitous in the '80s and '90s that it was easy to take her for granted. But the three years since G.I. Jane and Deconstructing Harry (both 1997) represent the longest amount of time she's ever been away from the big screen. The good news is that Passion of Mind represents something of a change of pace; the bad news is that it doesn't fulfill the promise of its intriguing premise or the potential of Belgian director, Alain Berliner, who made such an impression with his Golden Globe winning debut, Ma Vie En Rose (1997).
Like Sliding Doors (1998), Passion of Mind is about a woman living two lives. The twist is that she's living both of them at the same time. In one, she's a single Manhattan businesswoman; in the other, a widowed mother living in the French countryside. Neither can tell which life is real and which is the dream (and both are so idyllic, it's hard to believe either could be real). And so Marty/Marie starts seeing a therapist in each life. She also meets and falls in love with a businessman in New York (William Fitchter) and a writer in France (Stellan Skarsgard).
Screenwriters Ron Bass (Snow Falling on Cedars, Entrapment) and David Field have basically written a Hollywood version of a European art house drama and, just as Marty/Marie is unable to reconcile the two halves of her life -- until the end of the movie -- Passion of Mind never quite comes together either as a splashy romance (there's little chemistry between Moore and her on-screen paramours) or as a serious examination of psychological/philosophical dislocation. But Demi Moore fans should be pleased to have her back where she belongs and to see her branching out into new directions.
