The lovers in "The Heart of Me" have a line of poetry by William Blake as their touchstone: "And throughout all eternity, I forgive you and you forgive me. For theirs is not an ordinary adultery, but one complicated by the inconvenience that he is married to her sister. The film is a soapy melodrama set from about to and done with style; Jerry Springer crossed with "Masterpiece Theatre. Madeleine at last contrives to get Dinah engaged to a presentable man, but when the intended nuptials are announced at a family dinner, we notice that Madeleine's husband Ricky winces. We notice, and so does Dinah, who sends him a barely perceptible shrug. Later that night Ricky Paul Bettany opens her bedroom door and announces, "You are not going through with this.
All the high-toned accouterments that signify the ''Masterpiece Theater'' style of wistful Anglophilia embellish ''The Heart of Me,'' an undercooked romantic drama set largely in London during the 's and 40's. If the elegant home furnishings, smart literary references, soft-focus cinematography and plodding semiclassical score by Nicholas Hooper evoke Merchant-Ivory, the end product suggests tepid, bottom-drawer Merchant-Ivory in which the emotions rarely catch fire. The story, adapted from Rosamond Lehmann's novel, ''The Echoing Grove,'' is a fable of betrayal and forgiveness in which high-strung, bohemian Dinah Helena Bonham Carter recklessly embarks on a long-term affair with Rickie Paul Bettany , the husband of her proper sister, Madeleine Olivia Williams. The theme of forgiveness is blared in an early scene in which the clandestine lovers, romping through the idyllic countryside, pore over a singsong verse by William Blake that invokes mutual forgiveness for ''all eternity. Bonham Carter is on awfully familiar ground, playing another variation of the free-spirited romantic she embodied in ''A Room With a View,'' ''Howards End'' and ''The Wings of the Dove,'' all far richer movies.
Middle-class dramas were once the staple of the British cinema, but they now largely exist in the form of costume pictures. The movie begins at the funeral in of the girls' father with everyone in black and the women in veils. This sets the earnest lugubrious tone. Their mother Eleanor Bron , with the glib cruelty that was once typical of the way parents pigeon-holed children, comments that Madeleine made her father proud, and Dinah made him happy. Madeleine is the responsible one who has made a good marriage, has a well-behaved young son, runs a tidy household, entertains her husband's friends. Dinah, on the other hand, is unmarried, unsettled, semi-bohemian, seems to have liberal views and is a coarsened version of Shaw's new woman.
