Passion of Mind


Marie, a widowed literary critic with two children, lives an idyllic live in France, but dreams of being a single woman on her own in New York. Marty, also a critic, is single, living a lonely, work-consumed life in the Big Apple, and dreams of another life in France. Marie and Marty are the same woman and throughout this confusing mystery we are never sure which life is real and which is dreamed. Both Marie and Marty are conscious of the other’s world, but also confused as to which life is imagined.

Dove Review

This psychological thriller has a fascinating premise, but ultimately the film does not live up to its creative concept. “The Sixth Sense” inspired ending doesn’t make up for the tedious, amoral claptrap we have to sit through for 90-some minutes. As for the talented Ms. Moore’s performance, well, her hair looks great.
