OPENED YESTERDAY IN HUNGARY, NETHERLANDS, RUSSIA; TODAY IN ICELAND; MAY 2 IN GERMANY
The image above is one of several included in a new episode of Spiegel TV's Making Of, which features Brian De Palma's Passion, as well as Mama and Scary Movie 5. (Thanks to Marina for letting us know about it!) Passion opened yesterday in the Netherlands, and here is another positive review:
Sylvia van de Poll, Film Abides
"The great camera work, in combination with the lighting effects, make for beautiful images that are a true homage to the film noir form. This comes out clearly when Isabelle begins taking sleeping pills. At all times (even if it is logically impossible) there are dark shadows from wide blinds over the scenes which results in a distorted atmosphere. It is difficult to determine what is real and what is not, especially when Isabelle is several times startled awake from (possibly) a dream."
Passion also opened yesterday in Russia and Hungary, and opened today in Iceland. It will open in Germany on Thursday, May 2nd.
