It's the rare page-to-screen adaptation in which the camera becomes an essential character.
Hearts hardly develops a pulse, hiding the faces of the protagonists in immobile medium and wide shots while any possible emotions get snowed under by non-contextualized intellectual musings and socio-politico-historical details.
"Scarred Hearts" strikes a warmer note by resurrecting an unsung hero of its literary canon.
The former's narrative drive was strong enough to minimize concerns over possible information gaps, the latter's unannotated immersion coupled with its episodic structure suggests the film won't have the same pull.
The medical regimen provides a background for the slow-motion whirl of young intellectuals, politicians, and socialites who turn the hospital into a microcosm of European diseases of the soul.
At two and a quarter hours, Scarred Hearts recalls the miserable overlong 2005 Romanian film The Death of Mr. Lazarescu.
a funky, funny, quasi-serious story rampant with quirky characters, amusing situation, near-barbaric medical practices and a fatalist, comedic look at life.
Jude has taken a singular experience during disturbing times and turned it into an equally singular film, one which begins advising that humans are meaningless then demonstrates just what elevates them - love and art.
Despite the film's bleak premise, writer-director Radu Jude finds dark humor within the certainty of death.
Using Belcher's poetic prose as commentary, the film manages to retain a solemn, sophisticated tone, while at the same time preserving its unique sense of humor.
Despite its density, the film has a surprising humor and vitality. [Full Review in Spanish]
