When Nicolas and Marie by accident run into Francis at the Vietnamese restaurant, Francis introduces Nicolas to his friend Antony. However, in the first scene of the movie you can see that Nicolas already has met Antony as they all sit at the same dinner table. There is nothing to say that either Francis didn't realize they knew each other, or that Nicolas and Antony were merely playing dumb and avoiding an awkward situation. See more »
Dolan's Fresh and feisty writing gives more life to heartbeats
This movie is so easy to take, it is to light that we sometimes forget the story and strictly focus in the friendship and sometimes-sweet rivalry there is between them, and it works really well. ''Les amour imaginaires'' is a success because of the normality and regularity of the situations this trio is faced to. Dolan's first movie, "J'ai tuer ma mère'' was the beginning, he proved that he was in the industry to stay, his maturity and sense of realism is astounding. Monia Chokri is a beautiful actress she really succeeds in her role by playing this sassy and provocative babe. Dolan himself is a really good actor and the fact that he is directing gives more credibility in his work. I really have seen a lot of senseless and "Holly woo-dish'' romantic comedies and it is a pity that none of them gives us that much satisfaction and entertainment, Heartbeats is one of those rare movies you will keep watching because of the lightness and the fuzziness. Dolan has really achieved a lot and this movie is a real keeper.
