...Malle's sumptuous DAMAGE casts a true erotic spell; it is one of the few films in recent years to evoke the dizzying pull of sexual obsession from the inside out...
Entertainment Weekly
Jan 29, 1993
Malle also draws finely calibrated performances from Rupert Graves as the puppyish, yet increasingly strong Martyn, and from Ian Bannen as Ingrid's hearty, rich and powerful aristocrat father. Full Review

It's to Malle and his gifted company's credit that this posh bodice-ripper often comes close to achieving its tragic ambitions. But the stylish Damage is a lot easier to enjoy if one doesn't feel compelled to take it seriously. Full Review

The worst thing about Damages is David Hare's screenplay. It is constructed mostly out of embarrassingly meaningful looks. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Stephen and Anna are wrong to do what they do in Damage, but they cannot help themselves. We know they are careening toward disaster. We cannot look away. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Jeremy Irons is miscast in this pseudo-steamy menage a trois, with Juliette Binoche at the center between father and son (Rupert Graves). Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Academy Award-winners Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) and Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) are lovers locked in the grip of sexual obsession. Obsession so strong it drinks passion, breathes fire and consumes everything and everyone it touches.

Academy Award-nominated Director Louis Malle (Atlantic City) peels back the layers of one family's tragedy to reveal a middle-aged man (Irons) and his son's fiancee (Binoche) entangled in an intensely erotic affair that is as irresistible as it is destructive. Electrifying performances by Irons, Binoche, and Academy Award-nominee Miranda Richardson as Irons' tortured wife, highlight this riveting portrait of an ordinary man, transformed by desire and willing to pay any price for his passion.

Product Description:

In this gripping romantic thriller, a married and respected middle-aged MP (Member of Parliament) becomes romantically and obsessively involved with his son's fiancee, ultimately ruining his career. Willing to pay any price for his passion, he goes a step too far, and ultimately arranged his own tragic demise.

Academy Award Nominations: Best Supporting Actress--Miranda Richardson.
