At this stage of his career, I didn't know if Luc Besson was losing it or not, he's pretty unpredictable at times, but I took the risk and snapped up this film anyway. I think it was the DVD case artwork that drew me in, it's pretty special and intriguing.

I wasn't disappointed, this is a really good film. What sold it for me is how amazing an actor Jamel Debbouze is. He is charisma... read more

When I first heard about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, after 6 long years, Luc Besson was finally back in the directing chair and, up to that point, he was probably the most ambitious French director at work. Since it is a really obscure flick, in France but even more abroad, it took me eventually almost 10 years to finally find a 2nd hand dvd while I was on holiday in Fr... read more

In ognuno di noi ci sono pregi e potenzialità, ma Andrè ha bisogno di Angela per scoprirli. Scenario una Parigi affascinante e magica.
View all Angel-A reviews
Description: Down-on-his-luck petty criminal Andre (Jamel Debbouze) has reached the end of his rope. Irreversibly in debt to a local gangster, with no one to turn to, his only solution is to plunge himself into the Seine. Just as he is perched to do so, a fellow bridge-jumper beats him to the water. Diving in, he saves Angela (Rie Rasmussen), a beautiful, statuesque and mysterious woman. As they pull themselves out the water, the two form a bond and venture into the streets of Paris determined to get Andre out of the hole he has found himself in. As Andre will find out, not all debts are financial, and sometimes the solutions to life¹ ... (more)

“When I first heard about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, after 6 long years, Luc Besson was finally back in the directing chair and, up to that point, he was probably the most ambitious French director at work. Since it is a really obscure flick, in France but even more abroad, it took me eventually almost 10 years to finally find a 2nd hand dvd while I was on holiday in France. Anyway, was it really worth the wait? Not really, I’m afraid. I mean, like all the movies directed by Besson, it was quite gogeous to look at with some really nice black-and-white cinematography but, once again as usual with Besson’s work, the story was terribly weak. Not only the plot was some rather underwhelming modern fairy tale but the characters were rather shallow and borderline u” read more

Watched 2010 (Finnish) (284 movies items)

"Ihan nokkela elokuva gangstereille velkaantuneesta miehestä, joka tapaa sattumalta naisen. Ei ideana ehkä omaperäisin, mutta toteutus on jo omaa luokaansa. Tilanteet kyllä saadaan mielenkiintoisiksi, tosin tylsiäkin hetkiä on mukana. Elokuva ei myöskään missään vaiheessa muutu umpisiirappiseksi."

"Alkaa lupaavasti, mutta muuttuu koko ajan typerämmäksi. Luc Besson epäonnistuu draaman rakennuksessa. Leffa sortuu melko kliseisiin ja onttoihin ratkaisuihin. Ihan kivan hömpän tästä olisi voinut saada, mutta tällaisenaan elokuva on liian naivi ja tekotaiteellinen."

Top 50 of 2000-2009 (50 movies items)

"Todellakin liian vähälle huomiolle jäännyt lämminhenkinen ja mystinen draamaelokuva. Tällainen teos sopii kaikille ja varmasti saa herkistymään. Mustavalkoisuus sopii tälle kuin nokka naamaan ja nyrkki siihen. Mestariteos ja yksi kaikkien aikojen yllättäjistä. Katsokaa ihmeessä."
