‘Knife + Heart’: Cannes Review

Dir: Yann Gonzalez. France/Mexico/Switzerland. 2018. 100mins.

“A film drunk on its own trashy, lurid aesthetic, Knife + Heart (Un Couteau Dans Le Coeur) has style to burn but not as much sense. Director Yann Gonzalez (You And The Night) crafts a murder mystery which is equal parts melodrama and camp, with a dash of exploitation thrown in as well, and while one shouldn’t expect realism or restraint for a movie set in Paris’ low-rent porn world of the late 1970s, the proceedings get progressively loopier and more unsatisfying with each reel” says Tim Grierson.
