Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) Reviews

September 23, 2019
I found it rather dreary... I just didn't think it was a lot of fun.

Mostly it's an enervating portrait, stodgy and flaccid, of two twits in love.

Does he have time for one last love affair with a much younger man? I'm afraid, amid all the cigarette smoke and moody introspection, most of us will run out of patience before we find out.

Honoré's picture is mannered, overlong and, at times, insufferably arch.

[A] baggy, irritating drama where everything is sacrificed for art.

Too slight and breezy to fill out its epic ambitions but too heavy to be a fun rom-com, Sorry Angel ends up caught between two worlds, failing to really do justice to either.

Oh for Bogart! Oh for the oblique directness or direct obliquity of hard-boiled Hollywood! Instead the film is an arch, dawdling, weirdly unconvincing tale of partner-changing and crisis-sharing...

Sorry Angel concerns several dynamic topics, namely intergenerational romance and love among men during the height of the AIDS pandemic. Yet it rarely plays like a film about churning, ungovernable life. It is instead a precious, inert gloss on lifestyle.

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.

It is often poignant and humorous but also placid and complacent, with performances bordering on the self-regarding and even faintly insufferable.

A film without highs or lows, a collection of people and thoughts and dialogue which often has trouble connecting in translation.
