"Heartbreaker, that's you."
Francis (Xavier Dolan) and Marie (Monia Chokri) are close friends. One day, they meet Nicolas (Niels Schneider), a young man from the country new in town. As one rendezvous leads troublingly to another, whether real or imagined, the signs are all bad.
Each of the two friends slides deeper into obsessive fantasies around the same object of desire. And the deeper they slide, the more their once solid friendship begins to crack under the pressure of competing for the new kid on the block.
Xavier Dolan's second film, HEARTBEATS, is a study of the fall into love. It starts with a meeting and ends in tears. The film explores the whole gamut of poetic craziness: passions unleashed, expectations, sorrow, humiliation and, finally, loneliness.
