Jean Epstein's Coeur fidèle [True Heart] established the great French filmmaker as one of the most inventive directors of the (then still silent) art form. A pared-down tale of a barmaid oppressed by an exploitative foster family who attempt to push her into the arms of an unscrupulous regular-about-town, Marie's heart (exuberantly vivified by Gina Marès) belongs, as far as she's concerned, to the tenderly blank Jean (Léon Mathot)... Coeur fidèle drives its simple story (which, with its infamous and exhilarating 'carousel sequence', helped pave the way for the narrative tradition of such Murnau masterworks as Sunrise and City Girl) on into the realm of what might be considered an early incarnation of French poetic realism all while still anticipating Epstein's magical, post-surrealist, later works. ***Special Features*** Beautiful new high-definition transfer of the film, officially licensed from Pathé. Presented in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio, via a 1080p AVC encode on the Blu-ray, and now running at its true speed and length - New score composed and performed by Maxence Cyrin - Original French intertitles, with newly translated optional English subtitles - A gallery of rare photography from Cinémathèque Française - A 44-page booklet containing rare production photography, and writing about the film by Jean Epstein, Henri Langlois, René Clair, and more

As for the film itself - well, it's an early silent and a melodrama, so expect long, soulful gazing into space, overdone anguish and unsubtle moral messages. But it's also clearly well ahead of its time in its creative cinematography, such as the screen-filling close-ups of faces and hands and the famous carousel scene where the world spins dizzyingly around the camera. The story couldn't be a lot simpler, beautiful girl with troubled history falls in love with the good guy but gets landed with the bad guy instead, but it's satisfying enough if you just suspend your disbelief and accept it for what it is. In all, an excellent presentation of an important slice of cinema history, well recommended.
The movie itself also left a lasting impression. The actors come across with great sincerity and it was easy to just sit back and lap it all up.
On top of all that the direction and cinematography were full of innovation!
A beautiful movie to have in any collection.
