Plot:
Anne (Vanessa Paradis) produces gay porn together with her lover and editor Lois (Kate Moran). But Lois isn’t happy anymore with their life and she leaves Anne. Anne tries to win her back by making a new, ambitious movie with Archibald (Nicolas Maury) whom she has worked with a lot already. But a killer is making his way through the gay community and he kills two of Anne’s stars as well, drawing her into the investigation that becomes ever stranger.

Un couteau dans le coeur is a neo-giallo or at least a tribute to the old ones. I, personally, am not really a fan of giallos. Usually they just pass me right by. But I have to say that this film worked very well for me and left a very lasting impression.
