Movie Info

Paris, 1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a semi-renowned writer and single father in his thirties trying to maintain his sense of romance and humor in spite of the turmoil in his life and the world. While on a work trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), an aspiring filmmaker in his early twenties, who is experiencing a sexual awakening and eager to get out of his parochial life. Arthur becomes instantly smitten with the older man. From writer-director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) comes a mature and deeply emotional reflection on love and loss, and youth and aging. In its inter-generational snapshot of cruising, courtship, and casual sex - Jacques' forty-something neighbor Mathieu (Denis Podalydès) rounds out the triumvirate - Sorry Angel balances hope for the future with agony over the past in an unforgettable drama about finding the courage to love in the moment.y

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (10)

A film that has both a narrative and an approach that transcends the expected cliches in order to give viewers a more ambitious experience.

Feb 15, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It took a while for this digressive movie to get its hooks in me, but once it did, "Sorry Angel" didn't let go.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

True enough, Sorry Angel doesn't always make you feel the weight of its presence-but as any good romance should, it makes you feel the sting of its absence.

Feb 11, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The lines have a consistently witty, acerbic sting; the voices we hear belong to men who are at once entirely comfortable in their skin and yet unafraid to discover new things about themselves.

May 15, 2018 | Full Review…

This uneasy stylistic blend lends a disjointed quality to the film that prevents it from fully coming alive as we lurch from incident to incident.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The film has some lovely beats, and good chemistry between its leads.
