The award-winning debut feature from writer/director Alix Delaporte is an arresting and intimate drama about two lost souls in search of human connection. Ang+â-¿le (Clotilde Hesme) is a young woman falling apart. Returned to the seaside town of Normandy after a two-year absence, she is fiercely determined to reconnect with her young son, yet also scared sheGÇÖs unfit to take care of him. Tony (Gregory Gadebois) is a fisherman who lives with his widowed mother, trapped in emotional solitude. The two meet via a personal ad; Ang+â-¿le is forthright and rough, and her attempts to seduce him are met with surprise: Tony literally canGÇÖt believe his luck... With her quiet, intimate approach, Delaporte allows the actors to shine, and the pitch-perfect, wholly naturalistic performances from Hesme and Gadebois elevate this absorbing and sensitive drama, as does the magnificent coastal scenery.
