The Heart

Love is not necessarily all you need in The Heart, a modern-day Swedish romance about a couple that has a hard time staying together despite their Midnight Sun mutual affection. Written and directed by and starring Fanni Metelius (Force Majeure), who plays an art student trying to make it with her musician beau (newcomer Ahmed Berhan), this well-acted two-hander doesn’t feel like anything new under the sun, although it has a nice level of emotional honesty and never shies away from the touchier sides of relationships. After premiering in Rotterdam’s Bright Future section, it could find theatrical distribution in Scandinavian territories and VOD action in Europe and elsewhere.

Mika (Metelius) is a fun-loving photographer and party girl who seems to own Sweden’s largest collection of crop tops. Tesfay (Berhan) is a more stoic, Zoe serious-minded composer who spends way too much time on his Xbox. They’re clearly opposites and thus naturally attracted to each other. Also, she’s white and he’s black, although the subject of race never comes up in the movie.

Like most couples, they have their ups and downs but seem to be genuinely in love. Yet when Mika decides to move in with Tesfay in Stockholm, things begin to An Impossible Love slowly unravel: Tesfay turns into a bona fide couch potato, while Mika seems to miss the more freewheeling life she lead as a single woman. They also don’t have much sex, which becomes a major issue that will eventually drive a wedge between them.
