Movie Info

Demi Moore stars in this unusual psychological drama about two women caught between reality and imagination. Marie (Moore) is an American widow trying to raise two children under difficult circumstances in a small town in France. Marty (also played by Moore) is a successful businesswoman in New York City who wants to leave her busy life and lead a quieter existence in Europe. But Marty is just a product of Marie's imagination -- or at least that's what Marie thinks. Marty, on the other hand, is convinced that Marie is just someone she dreamed up. Who is right? Or are both of them wrong? And where does it leave the men in their lives (Stellan Skarsgard and William Fichtner)? Passion of Mind was the first English-language film from French director Alain Berliner, best known for the arthouse success Ma Vie en Rose.

Critic Reviews for Passion of Mind

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (8)

Even by standards of Ron Bass, who has written soupy chick flicks, this fake emotional drama is a minor work; too bad French helmer Berliner made his English-speaking debut with this trifle

A juicy romance story for older teens.

Common Sense Media

Exhibits little passion and even less mind.

One Guy's Opinion

Never comes up with a compelling reason to care.

Somewhat interesting parallel lives story, but needed more ambiguity.

...there is too little happening here to sustain such a long movie.

Audience Reviews for Passion of Mind

Passion of the mind reminds me of a quilt, pieces of fabric sewn together in no apparent order, yet when looked at as a whole you realize that all individual squares came from larger fragments which were used in their entirety though not necessarily together and the whole quilt is quite beautiful. Two stories, is one a dream or is it a glimpse into a different universe? Perhaps neither are real. The movie though beautifully woven, seems to serve no real purpose.
