Ruined Heart on Limited Edition Blu-ray in December

16 November 2015

Third Window Films have announced the UK Blu-ray release of Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between a Criminal & a Whore for December 2015.

Somewhere in Manila, a crime boss rules with an iron fist. He uses religion and violence to stay in power. What superstition and razzle dazzle don't accomplish, his goons do. To his most loyal henchman he gives the task of guarding his woman, who is headstrong and impulsive, and often gets into trouble. Before long, she falls in love with the henchman, and the star-crossed lovers decide to leave town. Fighting ensues. It is while on the run that they finally get to know each other for the first time.

The combination of Phillipine cult director Khvan (Mondomanilla, Misericordia: The Last Mystery of Kristo Vampiro), famed cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Hero), Japanese superstar Tadanobu Asano (Ichi the Killer, Vital), Mexican newcomer Nathalia Acevedo (Post Tenebras Lux) and German synth-pop duo Stereo Total make for a wild ride you won’t forget!
