  1. Diderot's rating of the film Angel-A

    A joyful little movie, the best I've seen by Besson.

  2. pumpkindraconis's rating of the film Angel-A

    Such a striking one. Some great lines on love and pain in the deepest. Geniune acting, real dialogues. It's far from fantasy for me. One second i was crying, the other second i laughed. Touching soundtrack, beautiful shots. "It's hard to love yourself, when no one reflects that."

  3. Stein Ove Lien's rating of the film Angel-A

  4. bulgrin's rating of the film Angel-A

    Visually tremendous, great music and fine acting. Good move to shoot such a story in b/w - suppose he learned that from Wim Wenders. But the end destroyed the vision so that it gains a 3.5 only, and fails the 4 star rating. Still a nice watch.

  5. Carl Penguin's rating of the film Angel-A

  6. smndvdcl's rating of the film Angel-A

    An overlooked mini-masterpiece from Besson with an unforgettable 'love yourself' mirror scene - transcendent therapy at its finest. The acute transitions between comedy, drama and fantasy are a marvel. The monochromatic cinematography is merely a bonus. What a wonderful film.

  7. -REM-'s rating of the film Angel-A

  8. salemsharp's rating of the film Angel-A

    this is a solid feel good movie, the ending is a little forced, but I had fun

  9. kopfkompass's rating of the film Angel-A

    Bets on an artsy look to hide its cuteness. Works perfectly.

  10. sacajawèale's rating of the film Angel-A

  11. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Angel-A

    Fails on every level. It's more a derision of "Wings of Desire" than it is a homage to it though it isn't trying to be either. What is it trying to be?

  12. s1mon81's rating of the film Angel-A

    Enjoyable. Only saw the first two-thirds as I paused for a day, then didn't finish before it was taken off, but great cinematography, and good story.

  13. ~SEZEN~'s rating of the film Angel-A

    Cinematography is great, black and white but always vibrant, on the other hand story is loose.

  14. Alex Thomas's rating of the film Angel-A

    Beautiful cinematography but felt clunky and the ending seemed forced

  15. stair_well's rating of the film Angel-A

    Lush to look at. Paris without the crowds. Enthusiastic acting. Story enticing but empty.

  16. milhouse94's rating of the film Angel-A

    On the whole, a wonderfully made film, and the first 3/4 were really enjoyable. However, the final portion was disappointing; it seemed somewhat forced and unfortunately became almost cringe-worthy. Still, worth the watch.

  17. Charlie Bury's rating of the film Angel-A

    Beautiful monochrome shots of Paris and its eye-popping arch bridges. Electric and emotionally intelligent for the most part. Perfect casting for the roles and the relationship dynamic is exciting, sincere and thought-provoking. Certainly not a bad job of a wacky premise.

  18. klofter's rating of the film Angel-A

    Enjoyable in the moment but utterly forgettable. Besson tries to infuse it with ideas but alas (as often the case with him) they're half-bakes bordering on nonsensical. The cinematography is gorgeous to look at but in the end one comes away from this movie feeling like one has just engorged a generous serving of empty calories.

  19. Henry Fosdike's rating of the film Angel-A

    Shot in gorgeous black and white, the film is dialogue-heavy and nothing like any other Besson film. No car chases, just a character-driven story that attempts to get to the soul of what it is like to live your life to its full potential. The ending is utter bilge and the opening fifteen minutes take a while to get used to but the mid-section is brilliant. It's a bit all over the place but interesting enough.

  20. raggiodisole's rating of the film Angel-A

    Sweet, gentle, a little funny, and gorgeous to look at

  21. janh24's rating of the film Angel-A

    Not half as bad as the critics make it out to be; the cinematography is nothing short of stunning.

  22. Ian Pike's rating of the film Angel-A

    Funny, sad, beautiful. Beautifully framed and shot. The character Andre was slightly irritating at times (wanted to give him a slap!), but still highly enjoyable and thought provoking.

  23. James Bragg's rating of the film Angel-A

  24. Huw Morgan's rating of the film Angel-A

    Fantastic, thought-provoking, funny and gorgeous. It had a sincerity which is lacking in a lot of films. A little wild near the end for me but I was raptured. Nice. A couple of mildly amusing subtitle errors too.
