Spends 100 minutes dispensing painful examples of how infatuation turns people into idiots.

There are moments of heartbreaking beauty in it - although Dolan is still a work in progress. He'll get better - he's immensely talented - but he's not quite there yet.

Director Dolan focuses on the fetishes of fashion

Mature viewers may grow weary of so much posing but Dolan's take on modern romance and the wear and tear on friendship seems tailor-made for viewers under 25.

The vibe of the French-Canadian "Heartbeats" is better conveyed by its original title, which needs no translation: "Les Amours Imaginaires."

It's nearly impossible to believe that so young a filmmaker should be so fully formed and have such an arsenal of gifts.

Not too deep but oh so pretty, "Heartbeats" presents a hyper-stylized look at a love triangle, a sort of "Jules and Jim" for millennials.

While light on plot, this beautifully crafted film captures the emotional plight of its three young protagonists with insight and immediacy.

Alas, although Heartbeats is quite lovely to look at, there isn't much going on after all.

A pretty decent film in its own right, and a remarkably good one if you consider the filmmaker turns 22 this month.

A French-Canadian "Jules and Jim," the lamely retitled "Heartbeats" ("Les Amours Imaginaires") is an impressive second feature from 21-year-old Canadian wonderboy Xavier Dolan.

All the dramatic protraction gets at both a heaviness of romantic desire and emotional viscosity.

A palate cleanser of a movie: unfrenetic, reflective, even melancholy.

Dolan is proving to be adept at and unafraid of teasing out the flaws of his characters, seemingly more concerned with whether they are interesting than whether an audience will like them.

It's a bright, slight romp that seems to want to zero in on the pain and trauma of romantic obsession. If the filmmaker weren't having such fun mocking characters who fall hard while pretending not to, it might just be able to achieve that.

Dolan may not have quite developed his own voice yet, but he certainly knows how to crib from the best and the film features a dazzling array of style that's bold and truly communicates the film's adolescent emotions.

The triangulations of their desire are amusing but Dolan, as a director, is all attitude.

There's a lot that works in Heartbeats -- so much that its flaws stand out in disappointingly sharp relief.
