  • LOVE CRIME directed by Alain Corneau

  • Sep 1, 2011 to Sep 30, 2011
  • Location: Lincoln Plaza and Landmark Sunshine Theatres
  • Description: LOVE CRIME is a remorseless tale of extreme office politics, played brilliantly by Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. Isabelle (Sagnier) is the young ingénue assistant, while Christine (Scott Thomas) is the older woman, a senior executive in a multinational company doing deals around the world. At first they are friendly. Christine, the able executive, is happy to pass the grunt work along to the up-and-coming Isabelle as she learns the ropes. But when Christine starts to take credit for Isabelle's ideas, and a fellow worker bee begins to fuel Isabelle's growing doubts about Christine's duplicitous "all-for-one" attitude, the ground is prepared for all out war. LOVE CRIME is a complex, mischievous, surprising and ultimately devastating look on the corporate world, a last magical effort from one of the world's most loved directors.

    About the Artist

    Combining symbolic elements of the figurative and the abstract, French artist Christian Perez de Carvasal creates stunning canvases that reflect all the movement and energy intrinsic to city life. Inspired by a childhood in Paris, the artist paints sprawling scenes highlighting the majesty of modern architecture and the dynamism of crowded sidewalks and streets. Yet interspersed amid his urban landscapes are peaceful humanlike creatures which serve in juxtaposition to the harried pace that commonly defines city life. He explains, “I am inspired by urban life, people in motion, architecture, and colors. My mission is to provoke emotional and political reflections and visual expressions.”


    One of the hallmarks of Carvasal’s work is his us

    Strong Women, Fallen Men: French Sculpture Following the Franco-Prussian War, 1870-80

    French Sculpture Following the Franco-Prussian War, 1870–80 investigates the role played by the trope of the 'strong woman, fallen man' in re-establishing morale among the French people following the Franco-Prussian War. The study explores how certain French sculptors – including Falguière, Mercié, Barrias, and Rodin – presented this recent history of defeat in commemorative monuments that increasingly dominated public space across France during the final decades of the nineteenth century.
