Heartbeat Directed by Andrea Dorfman

What are people saying?

  • msmichel's rating of the film Heartbeat

    Andrea Dorfman (Parsley Days, Love That Boy) makes her first feature in years but fails to catch the charm of her first two features. Quirky film with a homemade look rests on the charm of lead Tanya Davis which fails and is lost in an awkwardness and lack of focus it can't recover from. Song score by Davis is more successful as are the lovely views of Halifax at times. On screen animation is amateurishly over used
