A family-friendly splendid french film that you shouldn't miss!
30 June 2017 | by jaden-53214See all my reviews

Heartstrings (Le Coeur En Braille) is one of the greatest films I've watched which seriously surprised me in terms of the fascinating story, brilliant actors and excellent background music! I must say that actor Jean Stan Du Pac (Victor) and actress Alix Vaillot (Marie) put significant efforts in performing their characters to an outstanding level. Moreover, the background music is doing well in expressing the moods of the characters while driving the plot. Compared to so many great movies I've watched, Heartstrings (Le Coeur En Braille) is definitely the most excellent film about innocent childhood love of all time. The ending is surprising, sad, profound and also satisfying. Throughout the entire movie, I honestly can't find a single flaw and every second is perfect regarding both frames and contents, everything works perfectly fine, and if you enjoy romantic comedies, this excellent movie should be the first one on your must-watch list!
