The Beat That My Heart Skipped 2005

Like his father, Tom is a real estate agent who makes his money from dirty, and sometimes brutal, deals. But a chance encounter prompts him to take up the piano and become a concert pianist. He auditions with the help of a beautiful, young virtuoso pianist who cannot speak French - music is their only exchange. But pressures from the ugly world of his day job soon become more than he can handle...

Ok, I am now officially a fan of director Jacques Audiard. This movie is great, the story is very unusual, the music selection is perfect, the actors are very good (especially Niels Arestrup and Aure Atika). And Romain Duris… let's say I always wanted another character of him (Xavier from L'Auberge Espagnole and Les Poupées Russes) to be a friend of mine. With this movie, I'm just scared of him. He proved he can play anything just like Kevin Spacey: from the good friend to the scary bad guy. Also, the title is beautiful ("The Beat That My Heart Skipped" is cool, but even better in French: "Beating My Heart Stopped"). Anyway, WatchThis.

Let the whole world know what you think about this movie. Just first.
