The Grand commits a Love Crime'

ELLSWORTH - The Grand's hot new film program CineGrand begins its annual Summer French Film series with 'Love Crime,' starring Ludivine Sagnier ('Swimming Pool,' 'Love Songs') and Kristin Scott Thomas ('Tell No One,' 'The English Patient') on Thursday, June 28 through Saturday, June 30 at 7 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. It's French night all weekend long, as The Grand celebrates hot French films in the summertime.

'Love Crime,' the last film from Alain Corneau, director of the acclaimed "Tous les Matins du Monde," echoes both "All About Eve" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" in a story of the deadly one-upsmanship between two women in a multinational corporation. Ruthless executive Christine (Thomas) brings on Isabelle (Sagnier) as her assistant, and she takes delight in toying with the young woman's innocence. But when the protg's ideas become tempting enough for Christine to pass on as her own, she underestimates Isabelle's ambition and cunning, and the ground is set for all out war. Soon to be remade as an English language thriller by Brian DePalma ('Dressed To Kill,' 'Carrie') as 'Passion,' 'Love Crime' is a great Gallic thriller in the tradition of 'Tell No One' and 'Diabolique.'
