The film, after seeing which are pleasant emotions. It is not just the tape that it happens often, you can view and forget it painting, opechatyvaya on a long time. Perhaps such a vivid impression aroused I play The Floor, performing a major role. This young actor, sincerely and truthfully convey feelings that can make the film is a masterpiece. The plot is simple and complicated. Relationship old bartender Jacques and tramp's name Lucas create a sincere atmosphere, allowing to observe changes in the character of the protagonist. The desire to help everyone become dissuasive for the guy. But it is only the first part.

Second — conclusion, sad, combining in itself a bit of an unexpected turn of events.

Sincere, vulnerable, and measured the film with the ending, does not leave indifferent.

I flipped through this morning there reviews, reviews on the film is little known in especially our environment. The however, this film was lit with different kinds of collections, and so resonated with lovers; actually, my collections with his acquaintance, and started.

Say, if I in the right frame of mind, the movie was postponed would continue. And in vain, the film does not is forcing the character, on the contrary, it looks very easy and relaxed, where you need — a slightly funny scene, and where you added a sad, touching moment.

I looked up and realized I don't enough of the film. And I went to where the movies come to life, where them to join — in the author of the review. For me it was a complex issue, how to write a review, especially given that in all this I am newbie. But then I decided to sing the film laudatory odes, I don't really like labels at the same time I not that it was to find fault with the film, so himself it I liked it. And I stopped at the neutral reviews — the perfect compromise.

I would like go some moments of the film and finally made a decision.

First, it is a friend of Lucas, April. In the evaluation image of the character I torn between two thoughts: either this is the most insolent parasite, that its light is seen, or it is an absurd revelation of the character and introduction line of "love" in the story. Because her behavior is not be rationally explained — she says Lucas, what he is well, there smashes him in the blood nose, then offers to marry, but here is flirting with the viewer. Yeah and somehow special attachment with her to Lukas I noticed.

And a completely different story — the final. Yeah, he has not left me indifferent, this film the category of those that sit for long in your mind, you twirl them so that, I think how the story could develop, "if not".

That the film has a Good heart does not disappoint as its plot twist fans of this category of films. Although know disappoint, because in the finale felt something bitter, though, at its essence, it must be sweet.

The film leaves behind the residue for reflection, understanding of what you are, whether you are you its place and so much you right?

Worthy of a movie/10

I now I wonder why "Operation Argo" nominated for the Oscar, and the film "a Good heart" gathering dust on the shelf. It's a shame that this little movie reviews, and it is not familiar with a wide range of people. In one of reviews, not remember who wrote to the movie, but that man rightly noted that the world will eat itself yourself. Until we learn to lend a helping hand to such people as Lucas penny to us price. We rather suffocate from disgust, but a helping hand no file.

This film is about that among the vagrants found people with good heart. This film is about that a simple American bartender to really does not is a vagrants Lucas. This film is about that life can change in an instant when you have ceased to fight.

Bartender Jacques people with a complicated character. Have he has his own philosophy of life, their own rules. But once the world is Lucas, and the initiative of Jacques, little by little, he is changing. The whole life, he kept a bar and if someone from the angels in heaven he said will soon have to pack up and it is necessary to refer the matter in good hands. &Nbsp;Jacques found these hands. Someone who can laugh and say not believe that the beach bum, I. etc. And I believe everything is possible in life.

Jacques with Lucas is not easy. Good Lucas, Jacques not understand. But does not throw his ward. Maybe the bartender Jacques, Saint-Exupery and have not read, but his hardened soul, a sixth or seventh sense, he realizes that responsible of Lucas, so we responsible for those who have tamed. It says that Jacques bad that actually confirmed by the course of the film. And a fellow Director when he finds the girl in his film. Not surprisingly the theme of love party. Love is the driving force of life and she's capable of much of the particular cool to expand the life of two people and not always bad.

The sides touched upon the relations of man and animal made the film is just wonderful, because this is the goose played a role.

The movie "Good heart" for those able to feel, to empathize not words. This film is for about the people and for the people. Thank you, Dagur Kari for what about us stupid and greedy, the rock hard and stale. And big how we have to live!!!
