Critic Reviews for Coeurs
What reaches us, most of all, are the hidden, unmet longings that keep the film's Parisian characters from finding true happiness.
The tenderness with which Resnais observes their efforts makes for genuinely enchanting entertainment.
Private Fears suffers from [director Alain] Resnais' inability to open it up and give it the look and pulse of a film.
Resnais shapes affecting performances from a polished cast. He creates a warm, comic melancholy.
Resnais has always been an expressionist, using his settings and compositions to evoke the inner states of his characters. Here, tying expressionism to social critique, he becomes an improbable but unmistakable blood brother of Carl Dreyer.
A film about love and blunders done from the perspective of age, crafted by writer Alan Ayckbourn, 68, and director Alain Resnais, 85. Our younger directors and screenwriters should show this much brilliance and feeling.
Audience Reviews for Coeurs
I felt unattached from what should have been a touching and moving drama theatrical piece. Was the title intended to be Curse?
Uneven but beautifully crafted study of the modern malaise of trying to connect. Not all the scenarios ring true but they are skillfully entwined with an affecting score.
Middle-aged cast sorts out relationship problems so convincing, it's a bore.
