A Bluebird in My Heart ★★½

A sturdy, albeit unremarkable, post-Refn Eurocrime riff that really never distinguishes itself in any particular fashion. A shame, as the performances are uniformly understated and watchable, causing the lack of conflict (until the last thirty or so minutes) to become somewhat unnoticeable. There just had to be one beefed up element injected into the proceedings for it to rise a notch above the humming wavelength of competence it floats on for 86 minutes. That never happens, and the movie just sort of ends on this marginally unearned emotional beat. Oh well.
