Editorial Reviews

It s hipster sexual politics filtered through the French New Wave in Xavier Dolan s critically acclaimed HEARTBEATS. When Francis (Dolan) and his best friend Marie (Monia Chokri) both fall for the same guy, all bets are off as they attempt to out-manoeuvre one another to win his affections. Or at least figure out what his sexual preferences are and who s got a shot. Writer-director Dolan was only twenty-one when he completed HEARTBEATS, his heartfelt and tender second feature.

This film has become one of my favorite films of all time. Every scene is crafted with so much care - through lighting, music and motion - that an apparently simple story about a love triangle becomes a much more complex narrative about our desire for the unattainable and the loss of the self through love. Xavier Dolan is not only a prodigious director and writer, but also an incredibly poignant actor who chose his two other protagonists perfectly.

Format: DVD
This is a film from French Canadian Xavier Dolan, he writes, directs and stars as Francis. He is a young guy who has a friend Marie (Monia Chokri) and they both meet a newbie to the Montreal social scene in the shape of the Adonis like Nicolas (Niels Schneider). Francis is gay and Marie is gagging for it, so they both start acting like lovelorn puppies and show as much maturity as a bootleg whisky.

The effect he has on them is barely suppressed as they all pretend to get on and care for each other whilst in actual fact Marie is in open hostilities with Francis to garner young Nikki's affections. He seems oblivious but also a tad over tactile, which of course only adds fuel to the fire burning in everyone else's loins.

There are a lot of monologues to camera almost in an interview stylie, and the camera pans in and out like an amateur news man. This is obviously done for stylistic reasons, but some may find it acts more like an alienation device and tends to slow down the narrative.

Everyone smokes, which is great, all the acting is well above average and it oozes style. With lots of references and homage's to Katherine Hepburn and angora jumpers for good measure. The musical score is rather good too and the whole film has a sensuality that I normally associate with Italian cinema. As things come to a head (forgive the pun) the bitchiness is ramped up to levels where even high school girls would find challenging. You may also pick up some tips on the proper sensual way of eating a marshmallow too - if that is your thing.

This is a sensual, languorous tale of infatuation, jealousy and redemption and I really liked it.

Ugh. What is with this filmmaker? I gave this a shot, along with I Killed My Mother. Both were absolutely baseless -- no character motivation, no useful background or character development. And pointless. Just mentally defective or vacuous characters. The final party scene was repulsive (who hisses at someone at a party because their infatuation was not returned?) It was billed as a coming of age film, only nobody came of age (I define the term as involving some kind of growth). These were two self obsessed, emotionally arrested twits who both repulsed an apparently nice guy who felt genuine affection for them (despite his boring non character) by behaving like psychos. Then they hate him for rejecting them. I don't have to like characters to find them interesting, but these two were without any observational value.

Have you ever wrestled with the budding feelings of a potential love interest, while denying those same feelings so as to not compete with, or worse, break the heart of your best friend who may be falling for the very same person? Well even if you have not, you will be enthralled by the jealous competition and tender characterizations as well as the precocious skills of French Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan who directs, writes and stars. @kmptop10

Death in Venice meets In the Mood for Love (The Criterion Collection) here and the result is near perfect. Xavier Dolan explores the eminently romantic theme of the Ideal Love or, to be more correct, the Love of the Ideal. It's fresh, well observed and a lot more interesting than Dolan's first film. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
A 2010 Canadian drama “Heartbeats” (“Les Amours Imaginaires”) is so stylish (accompanied with nice soundtrack music) that you may almost forget that what the film’s star/writer/director Xavier Dolan, obviously talented, is trying to do could have been much better with his self-indulgent style.

This is a classic story of a love triangle with a bit of difference; two best friends Francis and Marie meet a handsome Nicolas and they both fall in love with him. The three persons’ initially sweet relationship takes a turn for the worse when the rivalry between Francis and Marie escalates without knowing.

Acting is excellent. Some scenes are so real that you may remember your own romance. However, slow motion, beautifully shot as it is, is overused. Interview section (a la “When Harry Met Sally…”) is too long. Perhaps I didn’t like the film very much because of the final five minutes that look superfluous.

“Heartbeats” (“Les Amours Imaginaires”) is an art-house film at its best and, to some viewers perhaps, worst.

But I couldn't even like it. I really adored Xavier Dolan's style, and enjoyed his first film, I Killed My Mother, but this one did nothing for me. Sure, it's stylistic and gorgeous looking---as you'd expect from him---and all the lead characters are gorgeous, but the plot was so weak and thin. I couldn't connect with any of the characters. I didn't understand what was it beyond the blonde haired guy's good looks that made the other two characters fall head over heels. I didn't even buy those two character's friendship. The chemistry in this menage just wasn't there. The movie overall just felt so unnecessarily pretentious, taking itself way too seriously. I'd recommend skipping this one. Just too boring and uninspired.
