Soundtrack imaginaire

Xavier Dolan's unrequited ménage à trois film Heartbeats (Les amours imaginaires), starring Monia Chokri, Niels Schneider and Dolan himself (pictured right to left), opens today. Artfully shot, if empty and irritating, it boasts probably the best (non-original) soundtrack I've ever heard, including Swedish band The Knife's steel drum electro runaround Pass This On, sibling offshoot Fever Ray's Keep the Streets Empty for Me and Bach's Cello Suite No 1 in G Major, BWV 1007. Highlights are outings for 3ième sexe by cult French '80s band Indochine, Isabelle Pierre's Le temps est bon and Dalida's Italian-language cover of Bang Bang, though unfortunately the last aren't available on iTunes in the UK.
