From the director of The Professional and The Fifth Element comes a stunning, sexy tribute to the healing power of love. When André, a down-on-his-luck gambler, dives into the icy Seine to end it all, he winds up instead rescuing Angela, a gorgeous, mysterious blonde. Filled with renewed passion for life, they set out to settle André's scores as they wander the City of Lights. Along the way, André finds himself, but he still has some questions about his leggy, lovely companion -can she really be as heavenly as she seems? Filled with wit, warmth and eye-popping visuals, ANGEL-A shows just how high you can soar when passion takes flight.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: We all have our own view of paradise, but as long as Besson has Arbogast, his camera and those surreal bare Parisian streets, his schlocky heaven enchants the eye, if not the mind.
Fresh: The overall experience of the movie is of something fresh. And while it inhabits a pretty rough world, of Parisian gangsters and loan sharks, the film has a warm spirit.
Rotten: Angel-A is all icky fantasy.
Rotten: Counterfeit art-house chic writ large -- a French film that fails to produce the ineffable charms of the yesteryear movies it brazenly imitates.
i have not seen it but the it saids that its in english but the trailer is french i belive. can anyone explain
A Beautiful Message
Luc Besson has done it again. To take such a simple plot line and fill it with a beautiful message, two actors that were made for the part, a good handful of laugh, and such breath-taking cinematography is brilliant to me. A mix of Meet Joe Black, Sin City, and.. Pretty Woman. Enjoy.
I was intrigued by the trailer a couple (few?) months ago but never saw it playing here in Los Angeles. I checked some reviews and they were mixed. I decided that I'd rent it anyway and it was well worth it. It is a simple message - love yourself. But, the way the film is shot and the actors playing the parts make it seem like that much more. It's a good way to spend a hour and a half and you may even learn something from watching this. You'll like it, good message, great cinematography, good story.
