Critic Reviews for Sacred Heart (Cuore sacro)

All Critics (1)

With a dazzling performance by Bobulova at its heart, Cuore sacro could win Ozpetek new fans as he forsakes his overly sentimental style for something both more subtle and more resonant.

Audience Reviews for Sacred Heart (Cuore sacro)


Sacred Heart struggles mightily to say something profound, but nothing ever really culminates in a way that feels compelling. This kind of story can be entertaining, but the central narrative is simplistic and painfully dull, and the ultimate message about finding a balance in life is relatively pedestrian. It's not a complete failure. The filmmaking is competent, if sentimental, and the performances are acceptable, but it's all in the service of a storyline who's twists you can see coming from a mile away and who's thematic elements feel trite and dissatisfying. In the end, for a film that purports to have tapped into the notion of what makes life fulfilling, Sacred Heart fails to justify its own existence, these ideas never feeling all that fulfilling themselves.
