Passion of Mind

( 1 )

Overview

The rather perfunctory DVD of Passion of Mind, Alain Berliner's offbeat psychological romance starring Demi Moore, may be due to the film's lack of critical and popular success. The disc offers an adequate widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital Surround Sound, and a theatrical trailer -- and that's about it. However, this may be enough for people discovering this mildly entertaining, if convoluted film on DVD.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A tender drama that combines the sensibilities of Harlequin romance novels and European art films, Passion of Mind allows its hard-bodied, hard-edged star to display her softer side. Demi Moore plays two women -- or, rather, one woman with two sides. As Marie, she lives in France with her two fatherless children and her mother and is courted by kindly writer Stellan Skarsgaard; as Marty, she makes New York her home and enjoys a relationship with accountant William Fichtner. She realizes that one of these existences is real and the other just a dream...but she can't tell which is which. Director Alain Berliner captures the charms of both locations with deceptive ease, and Skarsgaard and Fichtner provide Moore with admirable suitors. But ultimately the film rests on Demi's shapely shoulders, and her performance demonstrates that she's more than equal to the task of assuming that burden.

    DOUBLE DEMI... MORE MOORE!

    Demi's quiet return to the big-screen after three long years, ''Passion of Mind'', finds the superstar playing two roles. Based on ''The Double Life of Veronique'', Demi stars as Marie, a widowed mother of two in France who can't distinguish her dreams from reality. When Marie goes to sleep at night, she awakens as Marty, a successful literary agent in New York, and vice versa. She has a psychiatrist on both sides tyring to convince her that the other life is a dream. The problem with Moore's character ensues when she falls in love with a man on both sides (Stellan Skarsgaard in France, Wiliam Fichtner in New York). Whe she finally reveals her schizo-dream life to both men, the race is on for both men to help Marty/Marie discover her true identity. But Marty/Marie wants to keep both men and both lives. Directed by award-winning director Alain Berliner (''Ma Vie En Rose'' My Life In Pink) and written by acclaimed screenwriter Ron Bass (''Rain Man'' ''The Joy Luck Club''), ''Passion of Mind'' is a tad slow-paced at times. Demi tries her best to deliver a tour de force performance but fails to due to misfocused directing, a slight script, and a very bizarre ending. Demi-nuts will go crazy to see their leading lady, as will anyone with a soft spot for romantic dramas. ''Passion of Mind'' is reminiscent of Gwyneth Paltrow's ''Sliding Doors'' and even Moore's own ''Ghost''.
