Ménage à trois films always sound better in French, be they Jules Et Jim’s fated threesome or the goodlooking trio in Xavier Dolan’s romance.
The Québécois filmmaker plays one corner of the triangle, who’s as besotted with new kid Nicolas (Niels Schneider) as his best pal Marie (Monia Chokri).
The object of their affection is more tease than squeeze, keeping his preferences to himself as the friendship sours.
Sumptuously photographed and elegantly stylised, Heartbeats’ exterior is as seductive as Schneider’s R-Pattzalike. Dig beneath the surface, though, and there ain’t much there.

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.
