"A work of stunning maturity that uses the by now classic trappings of the Romanian New Wave (naturalistic performances, realistic settings, long sequence shots, absence of music) to startling, distancing effect." (The Notebook) "Alternately funny, raunchy and sad, 'Scarred Hearts' is an intimate look at one writer making the best of awful conditions. With its endearing characters and poignant themes, the movie doubles as a discovery for the filmmaker as well. Blecher's career came to a sudden end early on, but 'Scarred Hearts' suggests that Jude's just getting started." (Indiewire) "Radu Jude's eerily gorgeous 'Scarred Hearts' uses Emanuel's immobility to develop a melancholic master class in mise en scène." (Cinema Scope)
