Breathless Character Study

by Jacques Audiard

From the moment he comes on the screen Romain Durais is filled with an amazing, kinetic energy. He’s constantly moving and is mesmerizing to watch in Jacques Audiard’s The Beat That My Heart Skipped. I don’t know what it is about French filmmakers, but I love the stylish character studies from the New Wave to now, from Jacques Becker to Jacques Audiard. I loved, loved, loved this film. The music, the way it was shot and the acting. Subtle and wonderful.
