Movie Info

Directed by Giada Colagrande, Aprimi II Cuore follows the obsessive and sometimes incestuous relationship between sisters Caterina (Colagrande) and Maria (Natalie Cristiani). Caterina, 17-years-old and shy, loves the arts and takes comfort in listening to music while her sister, a prostitute, entertains her nightly host of clients. Living in the apartment becomes harder with each passing day, as Maria is only allowed to leave to go to dance class. Despite Maria's efforts, Caterina falls for her

The first-time filmmaker lacks the stylistic assuredness to put the material over, and the mostly amateurish performances are no help.

Do they have Cinemax in Italy? Because surely that's where this filmy, flimsy fantasy belongs.

Giada Colagrande wrote, directed and stars in this atmospheric but baffling drama about a protective, possessive prostitute.

A grim, risible downward spiral of pseudo-porn.

After 90 minutes of bad dialogue, limp scenes, interjected cuts to paintings of the Madonna (sooo subtle!) and no emotional resonance whatsoever, you're more than ready for this weak Heart to stop.

Overall, it's rather less entertaining than the oh-so-French Secret Things.

Audience Reviews for Open My Heart

A fairly disjointed look at two sisters, obsessed with each other, without parental authority, who indulge in some pretty bizarre behavior. The older girl, Maria (Natalie Cristiani), turns tricks in their small apartment with a roster of regular clients. The younger sister, Caterina (Giada Colagrande, who also wrote and directed), studies at home and is socially isolated. Caterina falls under the spell of a janitor (not an instructor) at her dance school, the older Giovanni (Claudio Botosso). When their affair is discovered, Maria reacts in a most sinister way, even though she had been complicit in its start, It is at this point that the story veers off into la-la land. Plenty of full and partial nudity, and disturbing sex scenes, but this viewer prefers his steam to have light as well as heat. This certainly lacked rationality to the point that any positives were lost on this viewer.
