Movie Info

Through a symbolic visual language that may be misunderstood by some, director and writer Derek Jarman has created an experimental film that at first appears to be the internal fantasy of one man. In reality, the story is about the love between two gay men (portrayed by Paul Reynolds and Philip Williamson), seen against a backdrop of bleak industrial cityscapes or abstract landscapes. The sound of a ticking clock, and the voiceover of 14 Shakespearean sonnets add poignancy and a sense of the brevity of life to the relationship of the two men. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Angelic Conversation

  • Jan 22, 2010
    I think everyone can agree that Judi Dench is one of about five actors who can make reading the dictionary exciting. So, it's amazing to hear her read some of Shakespeare's sonnets in Derek Jarman's film "The Angelic Conversation." Sadly, that's the sole highlight in a movie definitely lacking in coherency about the struggle of two men(Paul Reynolds and Phillip Williamson) trying to find each other in a cruel and harsh world, guarded over by radar towers. The symbolism is interesting but it just goes to prove that you need more than love to keep a movie going.
