Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, I discovered afterwards the fact that it was actually a remake which was really surprising. Indeed, most of the time, French movies are remade in some (very average) American versions.

Tom (Romain Duris) seems destined to follow in his father's footsteps as a Parisian property shark until a chance encounter with his late mother's music agent leads him to believe he can become a concert pianist. With the help of a beautiful Chinese virtuoso, he starts preparing for a critical audition and making positive changes in his life. But secrets from his past threaten to destroy his plans for the future.

"Most of the time, when it comes to remakes, it's usually Hollywood that remakes a film from another country. Here, it's the other way around. The Beat That My Heart Skipped is a French take on the 1978 "classic", Fingers, starring Harvey Keitel. Focusing on the daily life of a "land shark" and criminal, Thomas Seyr, his passion for playing the piano is reignited by a chance encounter. Now Trying to balance his love for music and his lifestyle in the mob, Seyr becomes caught in a struggle betwee"
