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.
