Billie and Lucas, a young Brussels couple, both leave for university facing a year rife with change. Visions of the future, doubts about relationships and the expectations of adult life make up the main material for their conversations with friends and each other. Kind Hearts paints a candid portrait of the formative but also uncertain facets of every (first) love.

“For Kind Hearts, we did not set out to make a documentary ‘about’ love, but instead wanted to take a look at a love affair in the concrete, depicting meeting points between the two lovers Billie and Lucas. The experience of love is closely linked to the experience of narrative; in our minds, we recreate love as an adventure. This notion of love as construction is also reflected in the form of the film, characterised by its ambivalent place between staging and documentary. For us, working on a film is always a matter of attention, care and concentration, both in its choice of form and in its relationship to people and places. Kind Hearts’s ambition is to adopt a loving gaze at how these two lovers relate to the world and each other.”

Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes

To a film that effortlessly plunges us into the lives of two ordinary young people, sharing a delicate insight in their emotional growth, while reminding us of the unpredictable and elusive nature of that thing called love."

Jury statement by the members of the International Jury in Generation 14plus at Berlinale

For the delicate balancing of narrative and real life which fosters a step-by-step process of intimacy between us and the characters on the screen, embracing without premeditation the unpredictability of life as a driving force."

Jury statement by the members of the International Features Competition at Play-Doc
