Angèle is a looker, though impulsive and forthright to a fault. Recently let out on probation, she needs a job, a place to live and a steady beau to help her prove she deserves custody of her son. She meets the balding Tony, a fisherman who lives with his mom, through a personal ad. But he is no quick patsy for her charms; he gives her a job and lets her stay at his place but initially rebuffs her advances. With a finely tuned sense of milieu and beautifully modulated performances, Angèle and Tony is a perfectly realized and moving romantic drama.

Angèle et Tony, France 2010, 87 min. Written by Alix Delaporte. Photographed by Claire Mathon. With Clotilde Hesme, Grégory Gadebois, Evelyne Didi, Patrick Descamps. Pyramide International.
