Movie Info

Angèle, a beautiful young woman with a past, arrives in a small fishing harbor in Normandy. 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. The relationships between Myriam, Tony's mother, and Angèle are far from easy but the young woman gradually adapts to her new environment and little by little Tony and Angèle manage to tame each other...

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Despite a very modest budget, A&T manages to be both intimate and cinematic, fully earning its upbeat seaside finale.

Immersed in the salty sea air of France's Normandy coast, Delaporte's debut is a tender tale brimming with atmosphere.

Refreshing and simple love story about a fisherman and a parolee

(A) beautiful wisp of a film... Simple, subdued, affecting.

Delaporte's skill is to show how very different chapters of our lives intersect in mysterious, unexpected ways, sometimes affording us insight and sometimes even grace. Like a healing poetry.

Congratulations to Alix Delporte on her first feature. She is a filmmaker to watch.

Debutante writer-director Alix Delaporte keeps our eyes fixed firmly on the title characters, releasing information about what might be keeping them together on a teasingly selective basis.

There's an organic quality from start to satisfying finish that bodes well for Delaporte's future as a director.

It's a small film but it has quite a lot going for it because also there's a sort of subtext about over-fishing and the regulations that have been brought to bear on these fishermen.

This is a tiny film with a nice heart.

The gentle pace of her direction, her wry tone and dreamy contemplation of a place that she clearly knows very well and loves very much add up to a delicate and disarming film.

a rather perfunctory film about an odd little romance that invites us to shrug in that French way, as if to say, oh well ..

I really enjoyed the journey and the resolution involving both the men in Angèle's life is nicely done with deft understatement
