Love Crime

This French thriller is a tale of office politics, played out by two ruthless executives – the billingual Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. With ambition and jealousy oozing from their pores, the pair slide from competitive colleagues to bitter enemies.

Love Crime is the last film from veteran French filmmaker Alain Corneau (Tous les Matins du Monde), who died two weeks after the French release.
