Every life is ordinary and extraordinary. Logan Mountstuart's is a rich tapestry of both. Matthew Macfadyen, Jim Broadbent, and newcomer Sam Claflin all take a turn as Logan at different points in his life in this provocative glimpse at one man's quest for glory and bliss. Any Human Heart is the story of a full life, lived with passion--expansive, rich, unsentimental, comic, and profoundly moving.

Any Human Heart -- I saw it first on PBS and had to see it again, and again. Bought it for my mother who is in a nursing home.
Truly elegant character acting, film editing, and storytelling at its best. "The personal is political." This story touches the heart and leaves a permanent wound that also heals. Reminds us we are all connected.
We need more such stories in our dehumanized time. Kudos to the author, the director and actors. Thank you for bringing the book to life.

I really misjudged the value of the preview, comments, and the title of this film. Any Human Heart, sounds like a promise of caring, love,.. Not so in this one.

It opens with a blurry vision of a struggling old man alone, with a serious heart condition. His memories switch from a dreary child's view of the world, his own father's dreadful advice, and the memory stoking, items in his chaotic, small, living quarters.

One of three young friends, he verbalizes the quandary and necessity to cure his "virginity" with the girl in mind, he views can satisfy that need. Way too soon, the film, devolves into successive, rapid-fire, explicit sexual encounters. There was no beauty in these depictions, and entirely No Redeeming Value, in my assessment.

After 5 minutes, I began to see this film headed for the trash can, but hopeful that it would turn into the film I thought I had purchased. Twenty minutes later, it went into the shredder.

The description on the DVD jacket, called this "passion", depicting this man's life was one of a writer, world traveler, with vast experiences, declaring that the women in his life, were, somehow, the driving force to his success. However, I was not willing to wade through the repulsive aspects to find out.

If you like, unapologetic, unattractive, bed-hoping, maybe you can wait it out.

Moving story and great acting

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Any Human Heart DVD (U.K. Edition):

This program was one of those that moved me on first airing on American television (PBS). I had hoped it would get re-aired as I liked it quite a lot as both entertainment and as a program which was moving and made me think--the tale of a life and its memories, regrets, and joys. I was pleased to find it on DVD and the program is excellent again on this second viewing. It is several parts and after each, one is eager for the next.

I first watched this movie on PBS and just hated to finish . I had watched it two times on Channel 11. So I had to buy it, so I can watched over and over again. This is such a remarkable story ! Movie !
