Movie Info

Laure (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos), a member of a crime ring, lifts an extravagant set of jewels from a model at a red carpet event. But instead of splitting the loot with her partners, Laure flees. While running from the crooks she betrayed, she comes across Lily (also Romijn-Stamos), a woman nearly identical to herself. When Lily kills herself, Laure assumes her identity and starts life anew. But paparazzo Nicolas (Antonio Banderas) has been tracking her, and may reveal all her dark secrets.

    no one could blame de palma for putting style over substance. he has built a career putting films together without any depth. this film has all the marks and the conclusion is quite interesting. the beginning we get most of the male viewers in alone

    Not De Palma's best movie but this might be the most De Palama movie in his ouvre. A kaleidoscope of heists, double crosses, voyeurism, outrageous twists, and indulgent style.

    I think this is an awesome film by DePalma who is a master of the thriller game as much as Hitchcock was in provoking an audience. Femme Fatale is a great film about two very interesting chracters outsmarting each other in a game of cat and mouse. DePalma tells this erotic film in a non linear style and uses stunning visuals and smooth camera movements to enhance the story. The eroticism is quite fascinating as when Romajin seduces a young woman in a washroom while removing pieces of valuable jewlery. DePalma is a student of Hitchcock and with other films like "Body Heat" or "Obsession", "Femme Fatale" is another great gravy piece of filmmaking and again a respectful homage to Alfred Hitchcock.

    It really feels like a lot of Brian De Palma’s early work, playing around with the Noir genre and fitting it into a modern caper/thriller. The visual style is beautiful, even more than usual due to the fact that it’s filmed in breathtaking areas in Cannes. The story is extremely fun and keeps you guessing along the way. The acting is decent, Rebecca Romijn clearly wasn’t that experienced at the time, but more of her work is visual anyway. I’m also not a huge fan of Antonio Banderas, but he was actually very good in this. While it’s not a perfect movie, it’s definitely worthwhile and a return to the past for De Palma.
