Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) Reviews

March 25, 2019
Mostly it's an enervating portrait, stodgy and flaccid, of two twits in love.

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.

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...

Lavish in its beautifully written dialogue and heartfelt sincerity.

The film pleasantly meanders from time to time, but it knows exactly where it's going - and we embrace every step.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Sorry Angel deserves to find an international audience, not least because the whole thing is just so drippingly French, all breezy beauty and smoke-wreathed, bookish wit.

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

Represents yet another major stride in the treatment of gay relationships on-screen.

"Life is dumber than films," Jacques says, and Sorry Angel represents Honoré's own sturdy effort to improve that equation.

Vibrant and moving.
