  1. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    Pointless. I've tried to see this twice and only managed to endure first 25 mins.

  2. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    "Here’s my ruined heart Please take care of it my love With your ruined hands"

  3. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    This film is the proof of the idea that a film can be made without any dialogues. The images and the accompanying music can tell everything and nothing at the same time. It feels like the film is an extended video clip of Khavn's music at times. Yet, it is definitely more than that. I will look for other films of Khavn.

  4. panagiotatos's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    it could make a nice video clip, but it doesn't make a good movie, nice music though.

  5. EdieEmm's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    I JUST NEVER WANT TO STOP WATCHING THIS! Like a pop-inspired Philippines Kenneth Anger, almost, saturated with glorious fluid punk queerness and cool and ALL the aesthetic, goddamn, Christopher Doyle! This is pure iconography. God, I love this so much.

  6. captainfez's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    A lot of attention to detail that'll never surpass the title's imagined potential.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    There might be a little style here and there but substance is missing all together in this failed effort by Khavn. Even the presence of Christopher Doyle fails to make much of an impression in this aimless mood piece. Disaster despite Doyle.

  8. lou.'s rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    No words or dialogues needed: the soundtrack does it all. Mysterious, deep and violent as only love can be. Caméra movements, cinematography and photography are just perfect.

  9. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    Another gifted punk. Amazing cinematography from Christopher Doyle. Great soundtrack. Do not expect any story, it´s a pure images-music combo, with sometimes a bit of a musical, some kung-fu, a rock concert, pretty much anything, and dark corners of Manilla as main character.

  10. Quattro's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    I'd really love to love this, but it just doesn't work: you simply can't tell a love story if you don't have the characters nor – well, the story. It all felt flat and fake, not to mention the ridiculously rushed ending. Besides, the editing totally lacks any sense of rhythm; that's a major issue in filmmaking in general, let alone musicals. Too bad those beautiful images and music didn't get the movie they deserved.

  11. Arno Ringoet's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    Although the lack of dialoque and absurdism may seem gratuit, Khavn is another artist on the broad asian-cinema spectrum that proves that emotions in fiction can be evoked throughout imagery, and the observation of human behaviour, wich works like a catalyst in an old-new love story. Stunning visuals nontheless.

  12. findfilm's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    A mind-bending and genre-defying trip of a movie with no dialogue and a constant stream of scenes set in the urban squalor of some nameless city. We trace the movements of a free-spirited and self-indulgent bravado who is at times tender or violent or celebratory or contemplative. The soundtrack is strikingly unique and perfectly matches the intense richness of the rapid-file cinematography. Stunningly original.

  13. Kamil's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    I feel strong Sion Sono vibes from this movie

  18. Dries's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    Stravedo per Asano ma sto film è un delirio pop senza capo ne coda che annoia malgrado la brevissima durata

  20. Nafisbelmont's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    might have just discovered khavn a couple of weeks ago but for fuck's sake i'll keep an eye on him from now on. never would've thought that a filipino director as good as him exists. plots were deliberately vague and almost wordless, it was amazing. In addition, there wasn't a single shot that wasn't calculated & visually stunning. long story short, the combination of doyle, kahvn and asano is fucking stellar

  21. Nejishiki's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    saw it on the first screening, damn thats cinema i missed

  22. El Biffo's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    A showcase for master cinematographer Christopher Doyle. With images like this, who needs a story or words? It hasn't got any. Subs are there for the lyrics to the amazing soundtrack. Frame rate: 24 MPS (24 masterpieces per second). See it on the big screen, please!

  23. Ostermyers's rating of the film Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore

    ASANO IS A GOD ! DOYLE IS A GOD ! I wanna cry now.
