The Beat My Heart Skipped
The moody, intense and memorable study of a young man torn between two very different worlds from acclaimed writer/director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Read My Lips).
Tom (Romain Duris) is 28 and destined to follow in his father’s footsteps in the sleazy and sometimes brutal world of real estate. But a chance encounter leads him to believe that he can become, like his mother, a concert pianist, In earnest, he starts preparing for the audition with a virtuoso Chinese pianist. She doesn’t speak a word of French; music is their only exchange. But pressures from the ugly world of his day job soon become more than he can handle.
