Critic Reviews for Open My Heart

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Rotten (6)

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

    December 28, 2004
  • 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.

    December 16, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A grim, risible downward spiral of pseudo-porn.

    December 14, 2004
  • 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.

    December 22, 2004 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Overall, it's rather less entertaining than the oh-so-French Secret Things.

Audience Reviews for Open My Heart

  • Jun 29, 2010
    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.
