User Reviews

 
An investigation of human behavior and moral relativism, as a young man falls in love with his best friend's wife.
3 November 2006 | by MaratSadeSee all my reviews

I loved this film. It deserves and demands a truly attentive viewing,and rewards that attention with a wealth of insight, nuance, and moments of emotion so striking and realistic they're almost heartbreaking to watch. The acting and dialog is absolutely first rate, and the chilly feel evoked by the unblinking location shooting in Manhattan and The Berkshires brilliantly underscores the film's themes of love, envy and betrayal. It's hard to believe how this missed being a bigger film. Much more ballyhooed projects have tackled similar themes far less adeptly.

Into My Heart is an overlooked gem, brimming with sincerity; It touches your heart and mind in subtle, sometimes unnerving ways, and lingers long after the final credits. Film lovers should put this one on their must see list.
