Perfect and human family movie
11 July 2017 | by maurodcSee all my reviews

'Heartstrings'is another beautiful and enjoyable french film that makes us see that cinema in France is getting better every time.

The performances were excellent, especially Alix Vaillot as Marie: the way her character grows throughout the 85 minutes of the movie is just as wonderful and heartbreaking as her character itself.

The script was also very good, 'cause it is lighthearted, hilarious but above all, it was human. Even if its a family movie, it doesn't mean that it isn't realistic and honest, because it perfectly portrays all the struggles that a person with a degenerative illness (and anybody) has to face to become a musician, and in life.

I personally loved all the scenes with Victor and Marie, because of how lovely and real they were executed. I felt completely identified with the character of Victor in those scenes.

Definitely worth to watch, especially if you love french cinema like me (particularily if you loved 'Ma Vie de Courgette'), and also if you are new in french movies, this is a good one to start.

Thanks for reading!
