He is a thug, who job is to beat up squatters occupying property he is eyeing. His father is a gangster; mother a piano player who has passed away. When the opportunity comes for him to become a piano concert player, he goes all out to perfect his piano skills.

The movie is about conflicts – between influences from his father and mother; communicating with his Vietnamese piano teacher who doesn’t know a word of French; and the woman he sleeps with, who happens to be his friend’s wife.

The title plays a clever pun on the word "beat" which can beat a heart beat, time beat or even the beat of a music piece. So which is the beat that he has skipped?

French movies are know for its stylish editing, camera movements and compelling storyline. As the Winner of 8 Cesar Awards and Best Film at the BAFTA Awards 2006, The Beat That My Heart Skipped is a winner.
