A Heart of Love – Director’s Cut

by Berlinale

Follow the facebook page of the movie Serce Miłości – Director’s Cut is a music film about love directed by Łukasz Ronduda.

A Heart of Love tells the story of the relationship between two Polish artists, Zuzanna Bartoszek and Wojtek Bąkowski. She is a poet ahead of her artistic debut; he is an established artist and musician. Two outsiders, unlike anyone around, but very much alike.

They love each other but at the same time they become artistic rivals.
