HOLD - Knife + Heart - SIFF 2019 Capsule Review



The Movie: Knife + Heart

The Director: Yann Gonzalez

The Cast: Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moran, Nicolas Maury

The Story: Paris, summer 1979. Anne is a producer of gay porn at discount. When Loïs, her editor and companion, leaves her, she attempts to reclaim her by turning a film more ambitious with the flamboyant Archibald.

The Review:
This might just be the best 1970's set gay porn murder mystery comedic thriller I have ever seen. The mustaches alone are worth the price of admission but this is also a really fun romp through genre nostalgia and yes, it's about as absurd as you think it is. A little long for my liking but still a solid film that shows off its love of some very specific segments of cinematic history.


Knife + Heart is an official selection of the 2019 Seattle International Film Festival.

A super spunky and energetic performance from Jessie Buckley, an Irish born singer and actress who takes center stage in a fun and whimsical production from director Tom Harper. Buckley manages to hit all the right notes while Harper uses a hit making formula that is guaranteed to play well with audiences even if it is a bit safe.
