Editorial Reviews

Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic thriller fueled by sex, ambition and the murderous side of Passion. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star as two female executives whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat. Bonus Features: Interviews with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace

"There's no backstabbing here, it's just business." Christine (McAdams) and Isabelle (Rapace) are ad executives who have friendly relationship. After coming up with a great ad idea for jeans Isabelle is sent to London to pitch it. When it becomes a hit and is picked up Christine takes the credit. This event begins a chain reaction of trying to one up the other that quickly spirals out of control. I have been watching as many movies as I can without seeing the trailer first, that way I have no preconceived expectations. That said knowing Noomi Rapace was in this and Brian De Palma directed this I was excited. I was not disappointed at all. De Palma is the master of the erotic thriller and he again proves why with this movie. The beginning is a little slow but you will be glad you stuck with it. Because I watch so many movies I am getting very good at predicting how a movie will play out. This is one that was consistently one step ahead of me and as soon as I thought I knew what was going on I was proved wrong. To me that is what makes a good movie, being surprised with how it will go keeps you watching and wondering. I am very surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I highly recommend this. I give it an A-.

I like Brian de Palma's films.
Well, most of them. /Scarface/ was a bitter disappointment, but then, gangster films were never my favorites anyway.
This film falls into a well-known category: a psychological thriller with obvious ties to Hitchcock. Well, obvious in the earlier ones; by now, this has simply become a de Palma style.
And that happens to be a category I enjoy.
And, like /Femme Fatale/, it shows, compared to earlier films like /Dressed to Kill/, what I respond to as a much smoother film.
As to being a version of another film -- when dealing with different versions of a film, in my experience, sometimes one film is better, sometimes another, and sometimes both are worthwhile. But some people have never seen a remake they didn't hate, just as some people have never seen a sequel they didn't despise.

***2 1/2 stars*** FOR POORLY PLACED CASTING OF TWO TERRIFIC STARS IN A REMAKE THAT FALLS SHORT OF THE ORIGINAL

I love both Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace in other films, but I feel perhaps they were not used correctly here. Most Americans viewing this film will assume it's an original work if they haven't seen the previous French movie Love Crime (Crime D'Amour). In fact, Passion is a very close copy of the superior French film staring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier.

McAdams doesn't have as much of the look of power and authority required for a manipulative business executive (too young) and Noomi Rapace struggles trying to be the young ingénue up-and-comer in the company (she has the harder street smart look). Actually, if they just switched rolls I think Noomi could have projected the slightly more mature authority figure while Mcadams could be the young protégé. Where the French version builds the mystery within a mystery - piece by meticulous piece, the suspense mechanisms in this film come across trite and perfunctory by comparison. If you only watch the US version, you may find it a passable mystery at best unless you are a die hard De Palma fan. Additionally, I didn't find the chemistry between McAdams and Rapace that convincing and the movie as a whole just wasn't that sexy, particularly for the R rating and hype surrounding the film.

THE PLOT (No spoilers): A rising female advertising executive uses the romantic infatuation of her bright young female assistant to manipulate her into giving ideas, which she steals to promote her own career. Further, she then humiliates the assistant once she has what she wants.

Occasionally, a movie will sound so good on paper, only to be a massive train wreck when it hits the big screen. Critics will take note of this, and it will make no money at all as a result. “Passion” stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as young women working in an advertising firm. One betrays the other, they make up, and a million more betrayals, including an unconvincing lesbian subplot happen. Eventually, the movie devolves into a catfight. A poorly plotted, ridiculously unconvincing and saddeningly poorly acted catfight.

McAdams is in Regina George mode, playing Christine, more or less the head bitch in charge. Except now Regina is maybe fifteen years older, and hadn’t learned a single thing from the accident that almost claimed her life. Rapace, who I really did like in the Swedish “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” miniseries, has no reason to really be here. Her character Isabelle is gullible, stupid, confused and massively unlikable, even though I’m pretty sure she’s supposed to be the protagonist.

Brian DePalma has had massive success in movies like this in the past, but I hate to say that he should have let this one sit in post-production hell. McAdams and Rapace are both fine actresses, and they really do try their best, but these characters are so one-sided and so bland, that even talented actresses like these find themselves all dressed up with no place to go.

If you like a soap opera-esque story that reinforces hideous and misogynistic gender stereotypes, “Passion” might be for you. If you can’t see yourself liking a story that involves two gorgeous women fighting over an ugly man, as well as occasional lesbianism, murder, twin sisters that show up at inconvenient times, and a royal letdown of an ending, I say you should skip this one.
