“The Beat That My Heart Skipped” is a memorable character study about a young man torn between a life of crime and classical music.
The 28 year-old Tom seems destined to follow in his father’s footsteps as a Parisian property shark working in a sleazy and sometimes brutal milieu. However, a chance encounter with his late mother’s music agent rekindles a desire for a musical career and hope for a better life. Director Audiard has fused two unlikely worlds into a stunning vision featuring a menacing and dangerous Paris rarely seen on screen. Like many French films, the central character is portrayed with great depth, revealing unexpected twists and turns.
