Sorry Angel poster - a film by Christophe Honoré
Graceful, subtle, satisfying and emotionally complex, this is one of Christophe Honoré’s best films. This very adult, emotionally complex film is fabulously acted. It’s a film of real grace, subtlety and brio.
Jonathan Romney
SIGHT & SOUND
Superbly acted, exquisitely funny and swooningly intelligent. Tender, wistful and oddly insouciant. What you are likely to remember from this movie is not just its heartache but its puckish wit, its soigné visuals and its ardent sensuality. Blue, often associated with sadness, is here recoded as a colour of joy, lust and defiant possibility.

Once this movie got its hooks in me, it didn’t let go. A big part of it is Jacques, who in Dellandonchamp’s hands is one of the most layered film characters I’ve experienced in some time. Egotistic, mercurial, erudite, recklessly affectionate, careless, vindictive, impulsive, he can turn from exasperating to heartbreaking in seconds flat.

WINNER – 2018 PRIX LOUIS DELLUC – BEST FRENCH FILM OF THE YEAR
OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2018 CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2018 MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The recipient of France’s most prestigious cinema award, the Prix Louis Delluc, SORRY ANGEL is the most personal, resonant and emotionally rich work to date from writer/director Christophe Honoré (Inside ParisLove SongsBeloved).

At once an intimate chronicle of a romance and a sprawling portrait of life in early 1990s France, SORRY ANGEL follows the intertwining journeys of Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps), a worldly Parisian writer, and Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a curious, carefree and much-younger university student who is just beginning to live. Brought together by chance, the two men find themselves navigating a casual fling that gradually deepens into a tender, transformative bond; Deladonchamps (Stranger by the Lake) beautifully lends his hyper-articulate sophisticate a haunted tenderness, but it is Lacoste, best known for comedy, who steals the film with an unexpectedly powerful performance, bursting with vitality and intelligence.

Graced with complex characters and inspired flights of cinematic imagination, this vivid, life-affirming celebration of love and friendship, a critical hit at Cannes, is one that true film-lovers should not miss.
