Heartbeats (Les amours imaginaires)
Part gleaming farce, part-tough-minded exploration of the inherent insanity of love and desire, "Heartbeats" centers on two close friends: Francis and Marie. At a dinner party one evening they meet Nicolas, a striking young man from the country who has just recently arrived in town. His boyish charm and classical good looks create an irresistible mystique that neither of the two friends can shake. The threesome begins to spend more and more time together. But the more intimate they get, the more remote and unattainable Nico becomes, sending Francis and Marie's comic obsession into overdrive. And as their hunger for Nicolas' affections grow, the more their once cast-iron friendship begins to crack and shift to rivalry.
