Film Fest Gent - A Bluebird in My Heart

"Based on Dannie M. Martin's book 'The Dishwasher', 'A Bluebird in My Heart' follows a stoical Danish ex-con who is serving the remainder of his sentence on partial house arrest at a fleabag hotel somewhere in Francophone Europe. A low-key thriller boosted by taut performances and slick cinematography." (The Hollywood Reporter)

"While the acting performances here are a huge selling point, the real highlight of Guez's debut is visual balladry. Even with the film's grubby urban setting, cinematographer Dimitri Karakatsanis ('Small Gods') works his magic and provides the dreary environment a facelift by injecting a drab atmosphere with dreamy shots of early evening and morning lighting." (The Playlist)
