Critic Reviews for Heartbeat

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

  • It's a lovely effort from the Haligonian director Andrea Dorfman - hers is an offbeat, human story that addresses personal risks and life decisions.

  • The standout is Clattenburg, in her film debut, who turns in a sensitive, natural performance that keeps the movie firmly in our shabby houses, on our leaf-covered streets, wielding our instruments for all the world to see.

  • Much like the film itself, the actress wears her heart on her sleeve then wipes her runny nose on it, offering the viewer all the human poetry of heartache, and all the goofy comedy of getting over it.

  • ...a slightly erratic yet wholeheartedly engrossing little drama...

  • Heartbeat is too aimless to keep our attention and loaded with so many quirky touches - fluttering animation, twee music over montages of Justine staring, lovelorn, at books and photographs - that it becomes distractingly cute.
