Sorry Angel

A young gay couple's relationship hits hard times in this French drama nominated for both the Queer Palm and the Palme d'Or at Cannes.

"Jacques is a writer living in Paris. He hasn’t turned 40 but already mistrusts that the best in life is yet to come. Arthur is a student living in Brittany. He reads and smiles a lot and refuses to think that everything in life might not be possible. Jacques and Arthur will like each other. Just like in a lovely dream. Just like in a sad story." (Cannes Film Festival)

It took a while for this digressive movie to get its hooks in me, but once it did, "Sorry Angel" didn't let go.

The lines have a consistently witty, acerbic sting; the voices we hear belong to men who are at once entirely comfortable in their skin and yet unafraid to discover new things about themselves.
