AS A HIGHLIGHT OF CRITICS' SEVEN CHANCES SECTION
Brian De Palma's Passion will be "one of the stars" of the Seven Chances section of this year's Sitges Film Festival, which takes place October 11-20. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Seven Chances, which is prepared in collaboration with the Catalan Association of Film Critics and Writers (ACCEC). Here is the description of Passion from the Sitges site:
"Passion, the latest erotic thriller by maestro Brian De Palma, will be one of the stars of Seven Chances 2013. The film, that has remained incomprehensibly unreleased on our country’s movie screens one year after its premiere at the 2012 Venice Mostra, is a free remake of Alain Corneau’s Crime d'amour (2010). Once again, De Palma drags us through a labyrinth of desires and obsessions via the dangerous relationship two women strike up, Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, in a struggle for power taken from work to the bedroom."
