5.0 out of 5 stars
Not for the impatient..., 3 Jun. 2003
Not for the impatient, Playing by Heart is a particularly good example of the complex romantic comedy. The excellent acting complements the apparently disparate -most definitely quirky- plot lines and incisive dialogue. A four star script, slightly weak on characterisation, works due to the presence and competence of the A-list cast.
It's not though; the film for casual watching and to really get anything from the film a fair amount of concentration is essential. Definitely not the movie for everyone you will have few laugh-out-loud moments but should leave the cinema touched and amused.
A solid 5 star movie overall some truly entertaining twists make this well worth your time.
