This review is from: Angel [DVD] (DVD)
This film is very good, yet very sad. Don't listen to the critique, it's nonesense. Just not everyone loves the subject matter, I guess, which is an ambitious but pretentious and capricious young woman going after her dreams. "Spoilers" Because of her character strengths - like stubborness, belief in her dreams, not being afraid to not be satisfied with the lowly life position into which she was born - she achieves eveything she ever wanted: great carrier and recognition, a house she dreamt of, and a man she loved. Because of her character flaws, however - being too self absorbed, not taking heed of the real needs of those around her, and being arrogant and ignorant about the reality - she loses everything she has ever achieved, quite aiding the ruin of the lives of the few who were attached to her, like her mother and her husband. And in the end, she dies of a broken heart. Very sad, yet touching and realistic.
