A young struggling model living in Japan comes home to find her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend.
After the revelation, she runs off but does not predict the trouble she eventually gets into. Injured and in danger, an unlikely hero comes to her rescue. With an extended fight sequence that mirrors vintage Japanese fighting games, Burning Hearts really draws you in. Tone wise, the film is great with its naturalistic dialogue. Was it all simply an excuse to film a killer fight scene…possibly but it’s a damn good one with a cute ending.
