Gonzalez can be masterful in conjuring sexy imagery, febrile moods and erotic frissons, but his grip on the storytelling here is weak. Knife + Heart struggles to regain its initial momentum, falling flat until a lively climax.
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.
