She meets Tony, a professional fisherman, who finds himself attracted to her although he dislikes her blunt ways. Tony hires her as a fishmonger, lodges her and teaches her the tricks of the trade.

Critic Reviews for Angel & Tony (Angèle et Tony)

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (1)

This is a sprightly and economical debut from French former journalist and writer-director Alix Delaporte.

Time Out
Top Critic

Delaporte, a documentarist making her feature debut, breathes life into the scenes where the reluctant antiheroine is instructed in recognising fish and gutting them. The story however carries little conviction.

Observer [UK]

Hesme and Gadebois are both very good, somehow convincing us that this odd couple may inexplicably be right for each other, and the seaport setting is given a touch of poetry by Mathieu Maestracci's gentle score.

The List

At its best, Delaporte's film gives the impression of being uncovered as opposed to constructed, like an eccentric bit of driftwood exposed at low tide.

Guardian

The details of Normandy fishing life are rendered with surprising care.

Financial Times

Despite its faults, there's enough here to want to see what Delaporte does next. But only just.
