From the award-winning director of Scarface and Mission: Impossible comes a deadly tale of passion, betrayal and revenge, starring Noomi Rapace (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) and Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes, The Notebook). Christine (McAdams) is hungry for a promotion to the company s New York headquarters and will do whatever it takes to get there, even if it means stabbing her colleague, Isabel (Rapace) in the back. In retaliation, Isabel begins a passionate affair with her boss s husband (Paul Anderson). But she underestimates her rival s taste for revenge as she sparks a violent chain of events that leaves her fearing for her life...

Format: DVD
Rapace and McAdams are bitter rivals working for the same company, in this return to form movie from De Palma.

Rapace is the underling to McAdams exec, and when the latter takes credit for Rapaces work, rivalry ensues. But McAdams takes things a little too far, and eventually it leads to humiliation, and murder.

If you are a fan of De Palma, the first thing you realise is that this movie harks back to his best Hitchcockian 'homages' , such as Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, and Body Double. And in my opinion, these movies are his best pieces of work (Carlitos Way is his best film, but his big budget movies in my opinion, are just side projects).

What you also notice is, besides all the technology (especially Apple), how eighties the film feels, and how sanitised the film, and the sets look.

But I really cannot understand why this has such a low rating, and why it never had a wider release. Yes its schlocky, and almost parody, but one of Hitchcocks final movies was Frenzy, and that was almost parody as well, and this movie owes a lot to that movie.

The film is very humorous, and some of the overacting is intentional, such as Rapaces maniacal laugh, and McAdams little hissy fit, add only to the whole fun of the movie.

But what makes this film so good, is the wonderful story, and the usual plot twists that Depalma delivers in droves.

Just when you think you know the plot twist, he pulls the rug from under you, and gives you a dream within a dream sequence, and the best part of the film, the split screen,showing you the lead up to the murder, and a haunting Debussy Ballet sequence.

A lot of people may balk at the movie, and yes, the product placement sucks, but its so good to see DePalma make another Schlocky movie with so many red herrings, once again.

Would make a great triple bill with Femme Fatale, and Body Double.

This is a single disc DVD with no frills, all you get is the basic movie with the standard audio and scene selections.
Two women advertising executives have been work colleagues for eight months and seemingly get along well but then their latest advertising campaign sets them apart as Christine [Rachel McAdams], takes credit for her subordinate, Isabelle [Noomi Rapace] work. Meanwhile Isabelle embarks on an affair whilst on a business trip with Christines lover Dirk [Paul Anderson] unaware of Christine' actions. What then follows is a meandering tale of deception, corruption and power play as the central characters all fight for superiority.
The film starts with a restrained pace as we pick up the initial tension between the two women, this gradually intensifies as the film progresses until the real bitchiness takes over. The film is somewhat in the vein of Wild Things [Denise Richards] in that the story has a number of twists and turns and sexuality simmers in almost every scene. Humiliation, domination and murder are the name of the game.
The film has a strange late eighties early nineties feel to it and the sets all look they've been given that 90's Italian chic designer look which all adds to the atmosphere. There are even a few innovative moments such as the split screen ballet sequence squaring off with the stalking sequence.
Not a film for everyone but if you like a who-dun-it erotic thriller with a few twists, then this could fit the bill.

Format: Blu-ray
This is a superb, twisty turny Brian De Palma thriller.
Rachel McAdams plays Christine, a beautiful, thirty-something, bisexual advertising executive. She works for a German advertising agency and is hoping to secure a promotion to their New York office. She's very assertive sexually and likes role playing in the bedroom.
Noomi Rapace plays Isabella, another beautiful, thirty-something lady, who works as Christine's very talented creative assistant. The two ladies each have an axe to grind with the other - Christine has taken all the credit for a brilliant advertising campaign devised by Isabella, whilst Isabella is sleeping with Christine's boyfriend, Dirk.
The two ladies are Machiavellian schemers and they plot and counter-plot against each other, to win Dirk and to secure the New York job. The plot has lots of clever twists and turns, but it isn't so complicated as to become confusing. The two lovely ladies veer from very sexy flirting with each other, even kissing, through to outright nastiness.
This is a gripping thriller, very stylishly shot and with a strong Hitchcock vibe about it. The orchestral film score is magnificent. Noomi Rapace as always gives an impeccable performance, but she's matched all the way by Rachel McAdams. There's some very astute misdirection and the film never signposts what's going to happen next, it certainly had me guessing all the way to the end.
The battle of wits between the two lead characters reminded me of the excellent workplace conflict in Disclosure (Demi Moore and Michael Douglas) - Disclosure / Fatal Attraction [Blu-ray] [US Import].

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 July 2013
Format: DVD
The film focuses on the manipulative Christine (Rachel McAdams) who heads the London branch of an ad agency. She desires to get transferred to NY. She has no problem talking credit for Isabel's (Noomi Rapace) ideas. Dirk (Paul Anderson) completes the third side of this love triangle. Isabel attempts to fight back, but is no match for Christine. The back and forth smartly escalates until there is a murder. At this point the film moves from a straight forward film to a who-dun-it, did they really do it mess which caused me to lose interest and enjoyment.

Brian De Palma fans will see similarities to his other works, which I though superior. Decent acting and plot, but it wasn't my cup of tea.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, brief nudity (Noomi Rapace)
