We get very excited when we see films that take a serious roll of the dice and come up sevens...and this new Australian feature does just that.
Filled with vibrant (almost lurid) colour and textured dramatic set-pieces, the film follows Hans, a 44 year old living with his mother. When not driving, he assists his mother in looking after their boarding house of sorts, welcoming and looking after new boarders. Now, Hans’ relationship with his mother is more complex than it initially seems, a situation that’s complicated to a significant degree by the arrival of Matilda, a young musician trying to escape her life and who reminds Hans of his life past... and it’s about from this point that deeper feelings start to emerge.
Bloodshot Heart is packed with surprises and stylistic flourishes and introduces a vibrant new directorial talent in Parish Malfitano alongside a tightly-wound on-screen performance from one of our favourite Producers, Richard James Allen.
Screening with the short film Fun Times.
