SYNOPSIS: Forty years after his breakthrough thriller Sisters put him in the suspense/horror pantheon, Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed to Kill and Body Double with PASSION, an erotic thriller fueled by sex, ambition and the murderous side of passion. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star as two female executives whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cutthroat.
Christine (McAdams, The Notebook, Sherlock Holmes) is a driven, devious executive at the sleek Berlin office of an international advertising agency. When her ambitious but outwardly shy subordinate Isabelle (Rapace, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Prometheus) comes up with a brilliant ad campaign for a smartphone, Christine shamelessly takes credit for it, hoping it will bring her a promotion and a transfer to the New York office.
While appearing strangely forgiving, Isabelle in fact takes her elaborate revenge on her superior - which leads Christine to counterattack by setting up her own elaborate scheme to ultimately get her way. The teasing sexual interplay between the two women adds another layer of deception as De Palma employs all his stylistic flair to keep viewers on edge right up to the shocking climax.
