Heartbeats



I was in the mood to watch a movie last night so I hopped on Netflix. It recommended Heartbeats for me. Per usual, I had never heard of this particular film and didn't expect much from it. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Yes, it could have been at least ten minutes shorter and it's not exactly perfect but it's a good watch.

In the movie, two friends (a male and a female) are in a love triangle of sorts with another man. He is Nicolas (played to perfection by Niels Schneider) and is pretty much gorgeous. Schneider could not have been better casted. He reminded me of a cross between Paolo Nutini, actor Taylor Handley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, '06), a dreamy guy I dated in college and a Greek god. Deep breath.

The movie is in French with English subtitles which I actually liked. The cinematography is quite lovely as well. There is one particular scene that used one of my favorite songs, "Pass This On" by The Knife. That was the best use of a song in a movie that I have seen in a very, very long time.

Despite the overabundance of hipsters, this is a genuinely good movie. It made me laugh out loud quite a bit.

7/10.
