The moral of this structurally addled urban drama could be summed up more simply: It's generally not a good idea to let homeless addicts move into your apartment.

Strong cast, disappointing characters and a plot that's as thin as discount plonk.

There's a point at which good performances stop being enough to excuse dreary storytelling, shoddy execution and a general lack of ideas, and ... Junkhearts reaches it fairly early on.

Aptly named as the characters purge their tickers in their quest for redemption. Expect another bleak tale of inner-city hardship and self pity ...

It is a striking audiovisual style which rescues this production from many of the more hackneyed tropes of British social realism and urban grit.

Junkhearts does boast a memorably vulnerable performance by Marsans who commits fully to Krishnan's direction.

It's an impressive two-hander about sensitive souls facing stark realities - the lovers who life forces to become fighters.

Riveting performances hold our attention even when this dark drama starts wallowing in the messy lives of its central characters.

This is a tough film, and it isn't perfect: it works best when Marsan is on the screen, and we are inside his agonised day-to-day reality.
