Heart, Beating in the Dark

Film, Drama

Time Out says

Over two decades ago, Nagasaki made ‘Heart, Beating in the Dark’, a scurrilous, shocking, subversive Super 8 movie about a young couple on the run. Now, offered the chance to remake it, he avoids mere reiteration and has the now middle-aged actors from the first film not only meeting up with each other again for the first time in ages, but also meeting another young couple on the run - and trying to influence their lives so that they don’t make the same mistakes as the characters they once played. A complex, multi-layered meditation on life and art, society and behaviour, age and audacity; profoundly ambitious and highly rewarding.
