The story of three close friends who are involved in a love-triangle.
Heartbeat is a very hip movie that is in French with subtitles and has a huge amount of tobacco. The cigarette budget on this one had to be in the millions. The story basically is two friends one male, the other female, fall in love with the same adorable guy who’s got blond curls. Apparently blond, curly-haired Adonises are the new hip way to look. And how falling in love with the same guy affects their friendship. And in between, there’s kind of a Greek chorus of people who are talking about love and loss and — I mean it’s very hip, very new, new wave, very French and very smoky. But having said that, it’s a bit of an interesting movie. You sort of feel at the end of it that they’re all shallow and deserve what they get. But having said that, I’d give it two and a half stars.
