The award-winning debut feature from writer/director Alix Delaporte, Angel and Tony, is an arresting and intimate drama about two lost souls in search of love and fulfillment.
Angel, played by French rising star Clotilde Hesme, is a young woman falling apart. She arrives at the seaside town of Normandy determined to reconnect with her young son, yet also scared she’s unfit to take care of him.
Tony (Gregory Gadebois) is a fisherman, trapped in emotional solitude and who lives with his widowed mother. Angel and Tony meet via a personal ad; she is forthright and rough, and her attempts to seduce him are met with surprise: Tony literally can’t believe his luck… But will Angel’s secret threaten their future?
With her quiet, intimate approach, Delaporte allows the actors to shine, and the pitch-perfect, wholly naturalistic performances from Hesme and Gadebois elevate this absorbing and sensitive drama.
The competition closes on 27 April.
