Critical Rating: AAA 1/2
This has many attributes, but light and frothy are not among them. Women, not men, should bring a box of tissues to bed with them when they pu this in the VCR.
Heart is about a once-happy couple, Lisa and Harry (Stacy Valentine and Alec Metro), and the divergent paths their lives take after they split. The couple reveals their heartfelt dreams and goals in the first scene, after which the narrative jumps forward to the present and their experiences are told in flashbacks after some a chance meeting.
That includes some pretty hot sex and pretty fateful up and downs - mostly downs. Metro is a recovering alkie (and demonstrates remarkable acting ability), and Valentine has racked up a couple of divorces and some kinky husbands.
But sex is what this is really about, and without giving too much of the plot away, there's plenty of that woven around the clever storytelling devices. This is an Adam & Eve production, and that means it's conventional and mainstream. But with this cast, that's not bad. Valentine is in three of the five scenes and pairs up with Metro, Billy Glide and, finally, Peter North and J.R. Carrington in a threeway that's a scorcher. Couples will enjoy the sex and the tearjerker romance.
