Poster for If You Saw His Heart

Gael Garcia Bernal stars in this lost-soul-on-the-run story from debut writer-director Joan Chemla, inspired by Cuban author Guillermo Rosales's writings. More

"After the accidental death of his best friend Costel (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), Daniel (Garcia Bernal) washes up at the Metropole Hotel; a squalid place for social pariahs. This double exile, from society and himself, is Daniel’s form of self-punishment over Costel’s death in the hope of eventual redemption. But then, the bewitching Francine appears at the hotel (Marine Vacth, Double Lover) and the darkness of his extreme existence suddenly turns to romanticism." (Alliance Française)

Starts strongly but soon adopts an approach which is expressionistic to the point of incoherence.

There's not much to chew on beyond all the pretty pictures and the two attractive leads.
