Angel-A: Not Just for Film Snobs

Angel-A is a fantastic black and white French film created by Luc Besson who also directed movies such as Nikita, The Professional and The Fifth Element. The movie is based on an out of luck con man named Andre who is in debt to all the wrong people. Suicidal and desperate Andre's life quickly takes a turn. He is met by the beautiful Angela who is a stunning, sensual blond women who he finds throwing herself into the Seine river. You cannot help but to appreciate the aesthetic beauty of the film shot in Paris as well as the narrative between the oddball couple. This movie is inventive and superbly shot by the masterful Besson. You must make certain that you sit down with this movie one night and truly appreciate this artistic film. I urge you to go out of your way to find it.
