An intense power struggle between an icy advertising executive and her timid assistant turns deadly in director Brian De Palma's stylish remake of Alain Corneau's Crime d'amour (2010). A cultivated beauty with expensive tastes and a serious kinky streak, Christine (Rachel McAdams) holds top-office at one of the world's biggest international advertising agencies. She didn't get ahead by shrinking into the shadows, so when her coy but incredible creative assistant Isabel (Noomi Rapace) dreams up a wildly popular marketing campaign, Christine takes full credit for the idea. Simultaneously repulsed and intrigued by her boss' shameless candor over the incident, Isabel ignites an all-out war when she sleeps with Christine's lover. Later, when Christine turns up dead after humiliating her assistant in front of the entire company, the perceptive Inspector Bach (Rainer Bock) struggles to sort through the clues as Isabel grows increasingly unstable, and her story seems to change with each new interview.
