The Heart

15 yrs 100 minutes 2018 5.5

Mika asks her boyfriend Tesfay: "If you love me, why don't you sleep with me?!". Soon after they moved in together Mika noticed that Tesfay would rather play video games than have sex with her. They are young and are in the middle of their first great love, and in between all the partying, reality is starting to manifest and demand an answer to the question: whose heart can decide over the other person’s life? This is the director and actress Fanni Metelius's feature film debut. Björn Jansson at P4 Stockholm writes "I like the pulse of Hjärtat, the feeling of here-and-now, it's not a big narrative, but difficult to disregard. And I think Fanni Metelius succeeds in creating a film that feels real and not at all as constructed as many films about young love and sex can be."
