69th Venice Film Festival – Passion: meeting with Brian De Palma and Noomi Rapace
Freely based on the 2010 film “Crime d’amour” by the French director Alain Corneau, “Passion” is a film directed by Brian De Palma in competition at this year Film Festival. An erotic thriller that tells two women’s struggle for power and the obsession linking them together. The two protagonists are Noomi Rapace (already appreciated in the cinematographic version of Larsson’s trilogy and more recently in “Prometheus”) and Rachel McAdams also in competition with “The Master” by Anderson. Together with a restricted number of journalists, we met De Palma and Rapace to talk about the film. Will it be among the favourites? The press screening ended with some clamours that for a director such as Brian De Palma (“Scarface”, “The Untouchables” …) seemed exaggerated and unappreciative.
