Crime and Passion is a mediocre comedy-drama, about an investment counselor who doesn't handle his investments wisely. Andre (Omar Sharif) is in trouble with Rolf (Bernhard Wicki) because of Rolf's losses based on Andre's advice. Andre and his lover Susan (Karen Black) devise a scheme to have Susan marry Rolf in order to save Andre and possibly make some money. The plot is weak and the direction by Ivan Passer is lackluster, but Omar Sharif gives a fine performance in the central role. The film is also aided by a nice score by Vangelis. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... an agreeably peculiar picture, a kind of zonked-out St. George and the Dragon in which St. George is a certifiably incompetent zany and the maiden turns out to be half Dragon Lady herself."
‑ Richard T. Jameson, Parallax View
