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.

May 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

May 4, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

May 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

May 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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