Another superb French film last night, “The Beat that my Heart Skipped” (De Battre Mon Coeur S’est Arrêté). It’s about a guy caught up in a seedy life who tires to escape through using his talent as a pianist. You can read a review here. Excellent and unsentimental treatment of the darker side of life. It reminded me a bit of Ken Loach’s “My name is Joe” which is one of my favourite movies.
