What happens when fate suddenly snaps its fingers and turns four lives upside down? Open Hearts is about losing control, looking life in the face, and having the courage to go for the love of your life. Cecilie (Sonja Ilichter) and Joachim (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) arc young and in love. They arc soon to get married and they have their whole lives ahead of them. But, suddenly things go wrong and everything changes. Marie (Paprika Steen) and Niels (Mads Mikkelsen) are older, happily married and have three children, but their marriage is tested to the limit when unexpectedly the four paths cross and Niels falls passionately in love with Cecilie.
One thing is for sure: nothing can ever be the same again...

Classic Melodrama. - Open Hearts review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert

Typically schematic (for Bier), forensic dissection of a couple who become bizarrely disengaged following the serious injury of the man in a car accident. Shot in the dogme style on digital cameras, this raw and intense film deservedly broke Bier and her star Mads Mikkelsen, outside their own country.

Brilliant - Open Hearts review by BE

Spoiler Alert

Masterful production from Susanne Bier around the frailty of the human condition. Engrossing and superbly acted by the whole cast.
