Seeing the trailer, one would think this is an erotic thriller. It is not. The storyline is interesting, but a little bit predictable.

I saw this film months ago, and it was well-received. The script, cast, plot, directing, and film editing were impressive. Solid performances. Great chemistry. Suspense you can cut with a knife. Pardon the pun.

Love Crime has Hitchcockian pretentious, with perhaps a touch of film noir, but the "love" component is perfunctorily done and the "crime" pay-off is unconvincing (despite the twist in the tail). The Master would not have allowed the suspense to dissipate so wantonly. Full Review

It is interesting and ingenious, even if some of the kinky, queasy fascination that had been so intoxicating in the earlier scenes ebbs away. Full Review
The film is less corporate parable than intricately crafted revenge drama whose intensively detailed plotting can't hide the fact that the whole thing seems like a lot of work for a glaringly modest payoff. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
A delicious thriller that gets under the skin à la "All About Eve," albeit with a twist: The craft here is still theater, but of the workplace rather than the stage. Full Review
Picture initially suggests a sort of Gallic "Damages," with Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier in the Glenn Close and Rose Byrne roles, but the corporate catfight soon gives way to a cleverly designed whodunit. Full Review
