A giallo pastiche starring Vanessa Paradis as a maker of gay porn films who finds her team of actors menaced by a slasher, it's not short of weird incidents, but its spirit of kinky, compassionate melodrama has little energy.
There is suspense, sex. There are slayings. Yet often, we are instructed to approach with caution, as we are often their casualties. This difference in Knife+Heart is that queer characters are allowed prominent roles in their own tale.
It's rare to say striking visuals and hyper violence should take precedence over character development, but that is the case with Knife + Heart which prevails with the former, slacks at the latter and tops it all off sufficiently with saucy humour.
