Angel-A

Directed by Luc Besson

Director Luc Besson returns to directing with a stylish turn that harks back to the eighties heyday of the French ‘cinema du look’. IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE meets WINGS OF DESIRE in this sumptuously shot, glossy black & white fantasy-thriller set on the bridges and banks of the Seine. Lying chancer André (Debbouze) has run out of luck. Then he rescues Angela (Rasmussen), a beautiful, statuesque blonde, from the river into which she’s thrown herself. Over 24 hours, she manages to improve his life and his prospects – but at what cost to herself?
