[TIFF '12] Brian de Palma’s ‘Passion’ An Erotic Thriller With A Hint Of Giallo!

passion_05_large

It’s easy for a trailer to ber misleading, but Brian de Palma’s Passion looks incredibly dark for an erotic thriller. Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes) and Prometheus‘s Noomi Rapace both star (and appear to get it on), as does Karoline Herfurth and Paul Anderson

The pic, premiering at next month’s Toronto International Film Festival, is described as an erotic thriller in the tradition of Dressed To Kill and Basic Instinct.,

It 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.

Check out the trailer and first batch of stills.

    McAdams is by far my favorite actress. Really glad to see her in another thriller. She was great in Red Eye. This one definitely looks interesting. Kinda reminds me of the Amanda Seyfried movie Chloe in a way.
