Love Crime

JOY REVIEW

Love Crime is a really wonderful French film starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier.  Isabel is a young assistant for Christine, an older woman, who is a senior executive. They have a complicated relationship and Christine has a sexy boyfriend. Christine turns out to be a little less benign than we thought. I’m not going to tell you too much about it because the plot is, while you can see it coming a mile away, it’s still thrilling to watch it unfold, and I don’t want to spoil any of it for you. All of the twists and turns are absolutely predictable, but it’s still so well done, you’ll have a great time watching it. My great fear is that Brooke Shields and Drew Barrymore will end up playing the two leads in the American version. That’s a joke, but for just sheer watching two actresses and an actor at the top of their game, and being able to figure out the cat and mouse game that’s going on, even though you’ll see it coming, it’s still fun to watch. Four stars.
