UN COUTEAU DANS LE CŒUR / Knife + Heart

UN COUTEAU DANS LE CŒUR  / Knife + Heart

Dripping with the stylistic residue of the era’s B-thrillers, and soundtracked by a lush, synthetic score by the director’s brother (aka electronic producer M83), Knife + Heart re-creates a period of sexual freedom and optimism that, like its subjects, was under nascent threat by unseen forces that would soon do irreparable damage. (Jordan Cronk, Film Comment)

 

If Dario Argento, Brian De Palma and Kenneth Anger conceived a three-way love child while watching Cruising and listening to a Giorgio Moroder mix tape, the result would be something like French director Yann Gonzalez’s Knife + Heart. (Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter)

Yann Gonzalez
Yann Gonzalez was born in Nice, France, in 1977. After starting as a film critic, he went into directing with the short film “By the Kiss“ (2006). He made several other shorts before taking the leap to feature length with “You And The Night“ (2013), which premiered at Cannes Critic's Week. “Knife + Heart“ screened in competition in Cannes and won him Best Picture at the Athens film festival.
