  1. Sin título.'s rating of the film Angels Wear White

  2. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    8.3/10 “ANGELS WEAR WHITE bears out Vivian Qu’s striking facility in cinematic balancing art, thus for today’s Chinese cinema, her ascension is truly manna from heaven.” read my full review - https://wp.me/p1eXom-3Qk

  3. Renton47's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Using a split perspective that is hardly seen (even) in films of this nature to entangle several female experiences, it is this sensitivity to exploring the aftermath of the events that makes Angels stand out while being otherwise fairly pedestrian. Like many festival films from China it is bleak and despairing, the anger delivering a visceral and emotional blow in the final 20-minute stretch.

  4. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Okay, but it doesn't have anything I will remember.

  5. OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Expertly directed with superb performances and a cleverly crafted story that's reminiscent of Asghar Farhadi's A Seperation. Angel's Wear White is a damning yet poetic comment on political corruption, gender politics and the fragility of childhood. Zhou Meijin has a huge future ahead of her. 4.5 stars

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Une certaine décontraction filmique et une fausse légèreté existentielle n'entravent nullement une aberrante et consensuelle représentation de la compromission et de la corruption, aussi bien individuelles que collectives, où l'argent se positionne désormais comme seul vecteur social, loin devant l'idéologie et la morale ancestrales... www.cinefiches.com

  7. Sơn Phước's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Well-made and thoughful. Because the director is a woman, this movie is soft as a woman.

  8. saltwater's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    A Dardenne-esque tale of lower class exploitation that doesn't manage to stray much beyond its influences.

  9. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    From an aesthetic point of view “Angels” reminds me a lot of Dardenne brothers’ films. Mundane realism about the harsh reality that breaks those people who are in a fragile position – in this case young girls and working women. As much as “Angels” is about misogyny it’s about opportunism, money and corruption in contemporary China. A theme that keeps popping up in Chinese cinema, most likely for a reason.

  10. TZUHSIEN TANG's rating of the film Angels Wear White

  11. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Angels Wear White

    Despite the movie being nothing truly exquisite, it sure is well made and it raises an interesting topic - or at least it does so in an interesting way: the female condition in China is seen through the involvement of many characters in a crude event that happens to two young girls. All the girls and women are powerless, and driven by events. The main character (an illegal immigrant) reflects all of them.
