In this superb romantic melodrama random coincidence or, quite possibly fate, plays a pivotal role in the life of protagonist Marc. After a business trip to a provincial town he misses his train home to Paris and happens to meet an enigmatic woman to whom he immediately feels attracted. The rapport is mutual and both agree to meet again a week later. However, owing to circumstances beyond his control, Marc cannot make the rendez-vous, but does encounter another woman to whom he is also drawn! A heady love triangle, mischievously played like a thriller, “Three Hearts” ponders the mysterious forces of attraction and, with its superlative cast, could not be more quintessentially French!
