Exterior shot supposedly in London - see the double-decker bus - except the vehicles are driving on the wrong side of the road. The scene was actually shot in Berlin, Germany. See more »
I woke up in the hospital and my mother was sobbing, and I asked her what happened to Clarissa, and she said... Well, she didn't. She wouldn't even look at me. And no one ever said anything, but I knew what they were thinking.
[sniffing, then in a whisper]
That I killed her. And they never told me that they loved me ever again.

DePalma must have made this on a lark as it was pretty weak. Some of the shots are stellar, classic Depalma, especially with the use of streaks of bright color on Christine and some of the angles and hard shadows. The casting of Rachael McAdams as Christine was a huge mistake as it is impossible for anyone who saw the original Love Crimes to not compare her to the French Christine. McAdams' character was too young and girly, lacking the poise, command and sophistication required for a person in a position of Christine's. This movie moved too fast and did not explore the psychology of the characters with the necessary patience nor did it pace the plot properly. Noomi Rapace was good, but this is no surprise. Do yourself a favor and see the original, as the acting is far more superb, and it is casted and paced much better. It will not be ruined one bit by seeing Passion beforehand.
