Danish Edition, PAL/Region 2 DVD: Subtitles: Danish, Swedish, English. A young couple are looking forward to their wedding when an accident befalls them. You think your biggest problem today is going to get the shopping done and suddenly your fiancé gets run over. It's like a blade into your life, for better and for worse. The 'worse' is the event as it takes place; the 'better' is what happens afterwards. What happens when fate suddenly snaps its fingers and turns life upside down at a stroke. This is the central question director Susanne Bier poses and attempts to answer in her first feature made according to the Dogme rules. "Open Hearts" is a film about the promises we cannot keep and the life we cannot plan. A film about life, true love and the responsibility for the people we love.

As is usual with films made following the Dogme 95 manifesto it has the feel of a documentary about it (due to the use of hand held cameras - so no widescreen), and you really get to feel you are following real people and their lives through tragedy and love.
The plot concerns the effect a road accident has on the five main characters - a doctor, his wife and eldest daughter and two young lovers - and how their relationships develop and change throughout the movie.
If you've seen the other Dogme 95 movies - 'Festen', 'The Idiots' and 'Italian for Beginners' - then I would reccomend havng a look at 'Open Hearts'. If you haven't seen any Dogme 95 films then start with this one and move onto 'Italian for Beginners' before tackling 'Festen' and 'The Idiots'.

Loved the handling of such a tragic situation. The acting made it feel so real. Almost as good as rust and bone which was brilliant.Published 9 months ago by Chrissie
It is an O.K. watch. I was not incredibly impressed if anything disappointed. There are much better Nordic films than this offering.Published 10 months ago by Katie
