Extremely impressive
19 January 1999 | by milhouse-5See all my reviews

Heart is one of the most impressive movies of 1998. It's a drama that fascinates so much, because you have absolutely no idea what is going to happen next. All the characters are totally believable, which makes the story so disturbing.
