Love walks in, then takes a de­tour

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Film -

ANY­ONE who likes their ro­mance sto­ries with an edge should en­joy 3Hearts.

While most films in the genre set up its pro­tag­o­nists with an early meet-cute mo­ment to make us smile, then of­fer up a slight drama to threaten the bud­ding re­la­tion­ship, only to wrap it up quite nicely in the end, 3Hearts makes an ef­fort to be un­pre­dictable.

The char­ac­ters are dam­aged and the out­come not the most ideal.

Tax in­spec­tor Marc Beaulieu (Benoît Poelvo­orde) meets trou­bled Sylvie Berg- er (Char­lotte Gains­bourg) one night and there is an in­stant at­trac­tion.

The two walk and chat – Be­fore Sun­set style – and agree to meet again.

A work-re­lated is­sue pre­vents Marc from mak­ing it and the two never see each other.

How­ever, Marc does later meet, fall in love with and marry So­phie Berger (Chiara Mas­troianni).

The twist is that So­phie and Sylvie are sis­ters.

3 Hearts

screens as part of the Al­liance Française French Film Fes­ti­val which runs un­til April 7.
