HEARTBREAKERS is an incisive look at male friendship and the contemporary Los Angeles art scene, and is a sociological consideration that often explores beneath the surface. Mancuso and Coyote are best friends in their middle 30s. Coyote is a bohemian loft artist specializing in

sadomasochistic works. As the film opens, Harrold, Coyote's live-in lover of five years, is leaving because she feels that Coyote's art is more important to him than she is. Her exit prompts Coyote's reassessment of himself and of his vocation; he plunges even more deeply into his art in

preparation for an upcoming exhibition. Coyote and Mancuso are as close personally as they are distant tempermentally. Manscuso is the Jewish heir to a garment-manufacturing company, and his main ambition seems to be to avoid relationships with women--until he meets art gallery employee Laure,

whose philosophy regarding attachments is similar to his own. Authentically filmed in LA and featuring all the trendy spots, HEARTBREAKERS has excellent technical work and good performances from all. Not a great movie but one that anyone interested in relationships and a real depiction of Los

Angeles in the 1980s will find worth watching.
