Weird, but Original
9 May 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While returning home after fixing the lights of a billboard, the worker Vincent Harris (Norman Reedus) passes by a taxi with a damage of about 2 x 45 cm on the door. When Vincent arrives home, he finds his wife murdered on the floor of the living room. He claims that the driver was wearing a red jacket and a ring with a large stone. Three years later, he lives in Brooklyn but is still chasing the killer of his wife. His dysfunctional neighbor Alice Parker (Emmanuelle Béart) has a crush on him, but Vincent is haunted by the ghosts of his past. When Alice meets the cab driver Roger Culkin (Harvey Keitel) out of the blue, she seduces him, damages his taxi and gives a red jacked and a ring to him. Then she forces him to meet Vincent, inventing a culprit to release Vincent from his past and stay with her.

"A Crime" is a weird but original movie, supported by the magnificent Emmanuelle Béart in the role of a fatal woman. The story is unusual and follows the style of a film-noir, and the mysterious character performed by Emmanuelle Béart is one of the most manipulative I have ever seen, using her sexy body to create an illusional relationship with the tough taxi driver Roger Culkin to achieve her ultimate objective. The movie has erotic scenes performed by Emmanuelle Béart and Harvey Keitel and I liked it. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Crime" ("The Crime")
