An erotic thriller in the tradition of Dressed To Kill and Basic Instinct, Brian de Palma's Passion tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé, Isabelle, is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They're on the same team, after all... But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine's lovers, war breaks out.
A remake of a French film from Alain Corneau called Crime d’amour (Love Crime), in which a conflict between two competing female corporate executives leads to murder.
