What adds up to great scenery, music, costumes, acting, performances and execution is a common-yet-novel love story that scratches even deeper than most of us [public] may believe at first glances.

Young and passionate, ambiguous and straightforward. Full of contrasts but pretty clear. Enjoyable, satisfactory. Expand

Since that day I have been waiting for a limited release or press release of the film. Heck, even a screener would be nice. Months of anticipation and out of the blue the film shows up on netflix instant under new releases. No wide release, no press release, no limited release, no theater release in the US at all. I am just confused. Still, with all of that said this is my Netflix pick of the week!

The story itself may start out confusing to most. The reason, well this film is foreign and the most common way for a film to open up is with itâ

"Les amours imaginaires" provides a story that everyone knows. A love triangle intended as a bisexual story. Dolan is a good hipster, He offers a simple story deck with vintage and elegant confection. Props is good but it's not enough. Dolan"Les amours imaginaires" provides a story that everyone knows. A love triangle intended as a bisexual story. Dolan is a good hipster, He offers a simple story deck with vintage and elegant confection. Props is good but it's not enough. Dolan is very young still. He needs to grow and he needs to be less hipster. "Heartbeats" is mixed but this is not bad. His next film, "Laurence Anyways" is better than "Les amours imaginaires" and "J'ai tué ma mère". I think that Dolan will be bette director in future. Expand

His second feature, HEARTBEATS is not Xavier Dolan's best but as always, the film shows an energy and talent that's modern and truly captures the way we live now. However, this is the only one of Dolan's features that feels immature. A filmHis second feature, HEARTBEATS is not Xavier Dolan's best but as always, the film shows an energy and talent that's modern and truly captures the way we live now. However, this is the only one of Dolan's features that feels immature. A film about the young from the young. And Dolan is young. Only 22 when he made HEARTBEATS but still a step back after the amazing I KILLED MY MOTHER. Expand
