S.F. Chronicle film reviewer Mick LaSalle gave Alain Corneau's "Love Crime" an excellent review when it opened here but didn't write the one thing that would have made me see the film immediately, instead of several months later on DVD. The film has a "perfect murder" plot. The bureau chief is a sucker for perfect crime plots, although it's rare that things work out truly perfectly for those involved. I don't rate the film quite as highly as M. LaSalle but definitely recommend it. It's got two excellent and attractive actresses, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier, and a perfect murder plot. What else do you need?
