Still, thats not to say that Angel-A is a film without merit. Quite the contrary, in fact, as this simple, diverting tale has plenty in its corner. Andre, played by Jamel Debbouze, is just about to end his life. When we meet him, hes heavily in debt and he chooses to drown himself in the River Seine. Yet hes saved by the mysterious Angel-A of the films title (played by Rie Rasmussen), and she offers to help Andre pull through his current problems. Thus, the stage is set for a pleasant, engaging mix of comedy, drama and a dose of romance, made all the stronger by its likeable lead actors.
While Angel-A is undoubtedly lacking the ambition of some of Bessons earlier work, its a film thats hard not like. Its beautifully shot, tightly put together and thrives on its ultimate simplicity. It wont be a dish to everyones taste, but its nonetheless likely to reward the majority who are tempted to give it a spin. --Jon Foster
