Hearts are trump / Hjerter er trumf

Lars Brydesen (DK, 1976)

Hjerter er trumf (Lars Brydesen, DK, 1976)

Werner Nielsen, a man in his 30s, saves his life by subjecting himself to a heart transplant. He finds his personality curiously changed. It becomes his obsession to learn all about the donor of his heart, a man who died in a car accident. He seeks out the man's widow disclosing why he came. They fall in love and move in together, and that's when his new heart starts failing him, too.
