Critic Reviews for Falling Angels
So many reasons to see the darkly hopeful Canadian film Falling Angels -- a terrific unknown cast showcased in subtle close-ups, and a quirky literary script largely free of cliche.
It's the attention to small details that makes the characters so believable, especially in the way Smith delivers their sentiments: in quiet, personal moments.
Deftly balances elements of pathos, humor and the grotesque while maintaining a low-key tenor.
What offends most is the patina of smugness that seeps through every frame.
Audience Reviews for Falling Angels
Falling Angels may be rough at times but it has so much going for it, from content to performance, that it demands to be seen.
I love Katharine Isabelle and have scene all of her films except turning Paige and must admit that this is one of my top 5 favorite movies. Amazing acting and a depressing story line. One sister is pregnant, another a drug attic, and the other, a lesbian. My god, it's got to be a parents worst nightmare. Well it explains the end.
Presented in trailers and packaging, god knows why, as some kind of dark comedy, Falling Angels isn't. It's not particularly somber, either, in its view of a end-of-the-sixties Toronto family that's been crazy for a good long time. (There is one kind of LOL moment, I guess: late in the film when Miranda Richardson suddenly says "I think your father has lost it.") Three daughters, the ____ revolution, a dark secret, the last dad on the block with a bomb shelter, mom in hiding, sexual awakening, experiments with LSD, one of them might be lesbian...this all sounds like a lot of mediocre movies. Or worse, that horrible Beatles movie the Spider Man Murders of Broadway lady did. Falling Angels has an overwhelming warmth to it, for all its angry and hurt detachment, though, and a great cast, and...Katherine Isabelle just never did make enough movies.
