Angèle is a young woman falling apart. She is leaving jail after being held responsible for the accident that caused her husband’s death. Tony is a fisherman used to sacrifices who lives with her widow mother. They are both looking for a relation. Their first rendezvous is not the most positive one…

I loved this so much. The whole piece is just beautifully observed. The range and depth of emotion conveyed through short, often largely unspoken exchanges is astonishing, particularly the close up sequences focused on Angele's face whilst she is riding her bike. I've hardly ever rooted so strongly for two people to make it work.
It doesn't always make sense, but this was a lovely film. It was too preoccupied making us part of real life, their life, to worry too much about putting everything in the right place. And that was its biggest plus.
Angèle, belle jeune femme à la dérive & désargentée, débarque à Port-en-Bessin, en Normandie, dans 1 commune frappée par la crise économique. Tony, un marin-pêcheur, dont le père s'est perdu en mer, l'héberge et la place à la halle aux poissons.

Super - loved it.Encore une histoire de La Belle France.Reminds me of watching les pecheurs landing at naughty (out of quota?) catch one evening while waiting for the ferry at Roscoff.LOL They weren't too happy with the little audience of tourists watching them at their work.Fortunately the Gendarmerie seemed to be otherwise engaged.
A slight film, but no less enjoyable and engrossing for it. Two great central performances (from Clotilde Hesme and Gregory Gadebois) help to ground this tale of a woman trying to get her life into some semblance of order again, but an order that doesn't stifle or change her, after some time spent in prison.
