The moral of this structurally addled urban drama could be summed up more simply: It's generally not a good idea to let homeless addicts move into your apartment.

There's a point at which good performances stop being enough to excuse dreary storytelling, shoddy execution and a general lack of ideas, and ... Junkhearts reaches it fairly early on.

November 27, 2011

Aptly named as the characters purge their tickers in their quest for redemption. Expect another bleak tale of inner-city hardship and self pity ...

This is London

More sincere than sophisticated.

This is a tough film, and it isn't perfect: it works best when Marsan is on the screen, and we are inside his agonised day-to-day reality.

It's an impressive two-hander about sensitive souls facing stark realities - the lovers who life forces to become fighters.

Little White Lies

A gritty, self-assured directorial debut.

Empire Magazine

Strong cast, disappointing characters and a plot that's as thin as discount plonk.

Junkhearts does boast a memorably vulnerable performance by Marsans who commits fully to Krishnan's direction.

Eye for Film

It is a striking audiovisual style which rescues this production from many of the more hackneyed tropes of British social realism and urban grit.

Shadows on the Wall

Riveting performances hold our attention even when this dark drama starts wallowing in the messy lives of its central characters.
