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...

Critic Reviews for Angel & Tony (Angèle et Tony)

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • As a harrowing insight in the real emotional traumas of modern day life Angel & Tony is hard to beat.
