Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #130. Nara Normande & Tião’s Sem Coração

Sem Coração

Based on the 2014 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight winning short of the same name, Nara Normande & Tião reunited on Sem Coração (aka Heartless) this past September for an on location shoot in the Northeast of Brazil. Maeve Jinkings is among the cast of actors here on a project that is set in the summer 1996 and delves into attraction and mystery. This directorial debut was selected for the Venice Gap market in 2021 and is produced by Emilie Lesclaux (Bacurau).

Gist: In the small village of Garça Torta, Tamara enjoys her last holidays before leaving for preparatory studies to enter college. One day, she hears about a girl with a scar across her chest nicknamed Heartless. Over the summer, Tamara feels a growing attraction for this mysterious girl.

Release Date/Prediction: This could end of dropping in Cannes, but we see this more as a triple threat at Venice, TIFF and San Sebastian invited film.
