3.0 out of 5 stars I love it - I hate it! The story of a Victorian Barbie girl, 27 July 2010
This review is from: Angel [DVD] (DVD)
I hate it. I love it. I can't make up my mind about "Angel" - the movie of the passionate, naive, obnoxious, ambitious egoiste Angel, who lives with her mother above a grocery and writes romantic novels. She has always dreamed of living at Paradise house and after she is published to buys the house - and everything that goes with an eccentric life style.

Towards the end of the movie, Angel's loyal companion speaks of writing a biography about Angel and muses as to write about Angel in reality or in her fantasy world. A whirlwind world of big emotions, passion, lushious everything.

In truth, Angel is a character that the viewer loves and hates. I admire her persistense even when she is ruthless. The story in itself is banal as has a certain Barbara Cartland flair, but that is the life Angel plunges into willingly. The movie itself uses superficial effects as a movie playing behind the characters to allude Greece and Egypt, but I find the entire picture complete. Today, we would call Angel a Barbie girl, but in the Victorian era she is Angel with over-the-top hand gestures and a naivety that makes me smile.
