Storyline

Gary (Eccleston) is wheelchair bound and awaiting a heart transplant. When a young man, Sean, is killed in a motorbike accident, Gary receives his heart. Maria (Reeves), Sean's mother, tracks down the man with her son's heart and gets to know him and his wife, Tess (Hardie). Maria's obsession with the only piece of her son still living is the centre-piece to this unique psychological thriller. Written by Jimbo <mcgyver@cybergal.com>

Sleeper alert
13 July 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Heart", a lean and taught psychodrama, peers into the life of a heart transplant patient as a strange and aberrant relationship develops between him and the heart donor's mother. An excellent film for those into razor sharp, no frills drama, "Heart" qualifies as an under-rated "sleeper". The film's only deficits are (on the DVD version I watched), mediocre video quality and poor sound with no English subtitles or CC. I listened to it via headphones so as to not miss a syllable. (B+)
