      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Director Corneau's swan song, Love Crime is smart and typically well-directed, but too thin and formulaic to overcome its melodramatic trappings.

      Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard Corneau paints the business scenes with brushstrokes that aren't always credible but is better at the psychological battle between the two women, aided by very watchable performances from Scott Thomas and Sagnier. Rated: 3/5 Dec 14, 2012 Full Review Gregory Maule Little White Lies A tepid and unsurprising drama that overstays its welcome. Rated: 2/5 Dec 13, 2012 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Love Crime has some intriguing touches, but a good deal of hammy acting as well, and the crucial murder scene is bafflingly accompanied by an ill-chosen Japanese-flavoured dinner-jazz soundtrack that kills the tension. Rated: 2/5 Dec 13, 2012 Full Review Richard Propes It's a reminder of Corneau's status as one of few filmmakers in the world capable of crafting an intelligent and emotionally satisfying thriller. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 15, 2020 Full Review Kelly Jane Torrance Washington Examiner Scott Thomas stunned in one of the best English-language movies ever made, The English Patient, but now is doing her best work in France, where she's lived since she was a teenager. Rated: 3/4 Jan 5, 2019 Full Review Mike McCahill This undistinguished French drama limps through familiar workplace-hell territory without yielding much in the way of laughs or thrills. Rated: 2/5 Sep 1, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jerod S Love Crime is two female execs that are willing to humiliate, blackmail and even kill to retain the top spot at the company. Not very original, but a smart crime movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Serge L The film goes fast and we jump into the story without really believing it. But intellectually it's fun to follow and see how it ends. A bit like a game of chess with twists and turns. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/05/21 Full Review william k Tightly directed with an excellent cast, this is a sharp (and twisted) crime thriller dealing with corporate ambitions and skulduggery and personal revenge. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent Hitchcockian drama thriller (if Hitch had been more interested in French lesbians) with an interesting enough premise, albeit capped by an ending you can see coming a mile off. The cast is as good as you expect, and keeps thing chugging along nicely anytime the film threatens to get too procedural. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Finally had the time to see this! What a fantastic well written decently executed movie! The two leads were amazing and for being a French film this was worth every minute! Lots of twists & turns and a satisfying end. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Large, spacious offices with magnificent views, a cluster of seemingly enviably successful business people.Everything is elegant and stylish, clothes and furniture. Almost like a perfect place on earth. But, this is corporate world, thickly populated with useful sociopaths, the lucky ones that made their pathology not only acceptable, but highly profitable. Well, good for them, but not so good for us. Their ruthless and efficient lunacy, transformed our world into new gladiator arena. Survival of the sickest. No room for compassion or decency. Hence the famous mantra of the demonic new ruling class. It's not personal, it's business. Dangerous saying for dangerous times. A permit to maim and slaughter all who are less deserving, and that's everybody, except themselves.Because who works harder doing nothing useful as this coven of warlocks and witches. New horror for the new era. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
