Queen of Hearts (1989 film) Queen of Hearts Movie Review Film Summary 1989 Roger Ebert

"An epic tale of romance, revenge... and cappuccino". An Italian couple marry for love and elope to London. Four children later, they are running a café in the Italian Quarter. The story is told through the eyes of young Eddie Luca.

Critically acclaimed on release and something of a cult film in the US, Queen of Hearts is notable for being Tony Grisoni’s first screenplay and Jon Amiel’s first feature after The Singing Detective. It is one of the few films about the Italian community in Britain and featured a wonderful cast of veteran actors (Vittorio Duse, Eileen Way) and new talent, including many extras from the Italian community.

US film critic Leonard Maltin called Queen of Hearts an "extraordinary and unusual film about an Italian couple who lead a pleasantly quixotic life in England running a family cafe. Tony Grisoni's screenplay embraces elements of romance, humor, melodrama, mysticism and fantasy in a heady mix. Remarkable first feature for director Amiel."
