The Beat That My Heart Skipped
De Battre mon coeur s’est arrêté
Dir. Jacques Audiard
France 2005 | Colour | 107 mins | Cert 15
Cast: Romain Duris, Niels Arestrup
Tom is set to follow in his father’s footsteps in the sleazy and sometimes violent world of real estate. Then a chance encounter leads him to believe that he can become, like his mother, a concert pianist. Writer/director Jacques Audiard turns in a crafty, contemporary Parisian update of James Toback’s Fingers, with his precise direction working in tandem with the simmering, complex performance by Romain Duris as Tom.
