Map of the Human Heart*

  • 1992 ----- color ----- 107 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Vincent Ward; with Patrick Bergin, Anne Parrilaud, Jason Scott Lee, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Joamie, Annie Galipeau) Avik and Albertine meet as children, play as children, and fall in love as children. Yet when they meet again as adults, their childhood love has not been forgotten--it has become a powerful magnet, drawing them together, as irresistible as the yearning for life itself. But fate has taken their lives on an uncharted course. Avik has become a World War II bomber pilot, while Albertine is attached to the one man Avik owes allegiance to, Walter Russell, an officer who once saved his life. Yet theirs is a passion that neither time, nor war, nor fear of consequence can interrupt. A forbidden love that will not be denied A passionate love that must be fulfilled. A love that comes with a price . . . that may be life itself.
