STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

Year: 1988
Country: Canada
Run Time: 92 minutes

Returning from a difficult and emotionally devastating assignment in Nicaragua, photojournalist Pierre Kurwenal finds that Sarah and David, his lovers for a decade, have abandoned him to have a relationship of their own. Overwhelmed and lost, Pierre tries to find a clue to his current crisis. He finds some solace in the affections of Quentin, a young deaf-mute, but it is not until he turns his camera inward that he finds the truths he seeks - the truths about himself. A film of profound beauty and sensitivity, L6a Pool's STRAIGHTFOR THE HEART is a powerfully affirming portrait of a broken man's spiritual redemption. 92 min.
