Critic Reviews for Heartbound
Heartbound is a frustrating work to watch about a potentially fascinating subject. It raises more questions than it answers, with one of the main questions being what it is the filmmakers really wanted to show and explore.
The narrative will hold viewers' interest as they find out what has happened to these couples and individuals over the years ... Otherwise, the film may be frustratingly evasive.
There's this marriage of Metz's more cinematic approach to these lives and Plambech's academic observance ... sometimes such a clash of method works, sometimes not.
Even when filtered through this abstraction, the film cannot erase an imbalance of power: of Heartbound's ensemble, those most affected by lovesickness are elderly white men; the women are instead homesick.
Profound in its documentation of ... humble, indomitable survivors, Heartbound is a work of great insight, and a very engaging movie.
