Movie Info

French writer/director Marcel Pagnol didn't do much editing when he transferred Jean Glono's excessively long novel Angele to film. Orane Demaziz plays the title role, an innocent country girl who becomes a Parisian streetwalker thanks to a smooth-talking pimp. Angele's father fetches her back to the farm, forcibly locking the girl and her newborn baby in his cellar. Her faithful rustic boyfriend rescues Angele, and together the two attempt to escape for a new life. But Angele still loves her father and returns home, whereupon daddy does an about-face and welcomes her with open arms. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
