Storyline

New York urologist Harold Lear gets a taste of his own medicine when he suffers a heart attack and is confronted with a medical institution which doesn't seem equipped to help. Wife Martha steps in to fight the system and get a measure of service and compassion. Ultimately the greatest battle is not waged against the medical profession, however, but against Lear's own failing body and his own mortal fears. Written by secragt

Very moving film
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched "Heartsounds" tonight. Its been some 22 years since the original, but this is my first viewing. I'm not sure I could have appreciated the content at age 19 back then, but now at age 41 having experienced serious illness and death along with the frustrations of dealing with the medical industry, this movie has me feeling I've found a diamond in the rough.

Mr. Garner and Ms. Moore deliver such moving experiences, I felt drawn completely into their lives as the Lears. It rings of "On Golden Pond" and "Terms of Endearment", yet unique.

What an amazing film!
