Metascore®Generally favorable reviewsbased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.
If Dolan is able to derive a certain comic tension from the simple threat of what could happen with these three in close quarters, he and his co-actors often spoil the mystery of the unsaid with the tells on their faces.

Monologues delivered by assorted unidentified losers in love who relate their unhappy stories to an unseen listener lend Heartbeats the semblance of a structure. But beyond that, the movie is a gush of gorgeous images and music.
Splashy colors, oddball framing, super-cool threads and cranked-up retro music supply the picture's bizarre love triangle with a dance-club atmosphere that'll seduce young audiences of most any orientation.
Militantly superficial and revels overmuch in its campy gay sensibility, but is sporadically fun if not taken too seriously.
There are risky plot choices all along the way, but the risks are what keeps the pot boiling as the complexities of the relationship triangle heat up and cool down.
Delightful and insightful romantic comedy.
Xavier Dolan is back with another madly stylish Montreal-made delight.
