'Love Crime' is French filmmaker Alain Corneau's last film and opens at the Music Box Theatre on Friday.

French filmmaker Alain Corneau died of cancer last year and his final film screens in Chicago over the weekend. Love Crime, a cat-and-mouse thriller set in the global corporate world, involves a fight to the finish between a boss and her talented assistant. To discuss whether this is more cat fight or great mystery-- or a bit of both– Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Christy LeMaster. LeMaster directs the Nightingale Theatre in on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago and joins Eight Forty-Eight monthly to talk about film. 

Love Crime opens Friday at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago. LeMaster also reviewed Screen Dances, which runs Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. at Chicago Filmmakers in Andersonville, Chicago. Filmmaker Nadia Oussenko will be at both screenings.

Music Button: Dinah Washington, "This Can't Be Love", from the album For Those In Love, (Verve)
