Both urgent and meditative, romantic but pragmatic, stylized but endowed with the freshness of [improvisation], and full of melancholy but also of the joy of living. [Full review in Spanish]
April 26, 2019
A dying-young movie where everything else is working towards a strangely low-key and life-affirming dénouement.
April 10, 2019
Sorry Angel honestly portrays the difficulty of connecting with another person when basically all facets of mainstream society have closed their doors on your humanity.
March 29, 2019
Despite my issues, this French import deserved more than the one-week local release it got at the Miami Beach Cinematheque (though kudos to them for showing this brainy, sensual and occasionally saccharine film).

The movie is at its best when evoking the vital succour gay men found in networks of friends during the HIV crisis.

The performances are first rate and Honoré deftly structures the action to reflect the mood of the times.

Honoré largely adheres to a restrained visual palette, mirroring his evenhanded vision of queer kinship.
March 21, 2019
The city - and the film itself - seemed to be bathed in blue, and it somehow feels both warm and cool at the same time. Warm, as in richly evocative, but also crisp and unsentimental.
March 20, 2019
People who died of AIDS were reduced to being viewed as mere victims of the disease, overshadowing the richness of their lives - Sorry Angel is tragic because, by focusing predominantly on that richness, the sadness becomes all the more affecting.
