The Press Reviews

  • Vibrant and moving. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

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

  • It is often poignant and humorous but also placid and complacent, with performances bordering on the self-regarding and even faintly insufferable. Full Review

  • A chewy, handsomely staged novel of a movie, Sorry Angel (whose much better French title translates to Pleasure, Love, and Run Fast) contains moments of piercing intelligence and heartbreaking beauty. Full Review
