      Xan Brooks Guardian At its best, Delaporte's film gives the impression of being uncovered as opposed to constructed, like an eccentric bit of driftwood exposed at low tide. Rated: 3/5 May 3, 2012 Full Review Leo Robson Financial Times The details of Normandy fishing life are rendered with surprising care. Rated: 3/5 May 3, 2012 Full Review Wally Hammond Time Out This is a sprightly and economical debut from French former journalist and writer-director Alix Delaporte. Rated: 3/5 May 3, 2012 Full Review Patrick Gamble CineVue As a harrowing insight in the real emotional traumas of modern day life Angel & Tony is hard to beat. Rated: 3/5 Jan 8, 2019 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) Delaporte, a documentarist making her feature debut, breathes life into the scenes where the reluctant antiheroine is instructed in recognising fish and gutting them. The story however carries little conviction. May 5, 2012 Full Review Paul Gallagher The List Hesme and Gadebois are both very good, somehow convincing us that this odd couple may inexplicably be right for each other, and the seaport setting is given a touch of poetry by Mathieu Maestracci's gentle score.

      Audience Member Another excellent French film with 2 amazing actors in the lead roles - Clotilde Hesme and Gregory Gadebois. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It's full of good intentions, but in the end I found the story flat, a screenplay lazily written, and populated with empty characters. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I was hoping this film would be good and I wasn't at all disappointed. It was lovely. The story is simple, and predictable enough if you want to predict things, but it's very nicely told, with delightful understatement and restraint. The film is beautifully photographed, again with great restraint, so that the beauty of the northern sea and sky and the pale and subtle colours of the landscape are allowed to emerge and speak for themselves. The film doesn't pretend to be anything more than a simple romance. It certainly doesn't pretend to be great. But it is in fact very good. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member An excellent film, bleak, tender, sexy and moving all together. It made me cry, and I'm a fairly cynical sort of guy. What a pity that such a minor masterpiece will never make it onto general release. It seems to me that French cinema at the moment is simply knocking spots off the general mainstream diet of Hollywood offerings and dare I say it, British films. Maybe we should make film making an Olympic Sport? Anyway, do yourself a favour - go and see it. You won't be disappointed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member pas extra film un peu surcote Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Odd pairing of the lead characters with nothing in common. Not convinced that they will stay together for long after the ending. Nice cinematography. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
