Penniless writer Angel Deverell (Romola Garai) meets wealthy publisher Théo (Sam Neill), who becomes an avid champion of her work. The resulting series of explicit romance novels makes Deverell a celebrity -- and catapults her into the upper echelons of English society.

  • What nearly saves the movie, besides the Rasmussen eye candy, is Paris itself, shot in shimmering black-and-white by the gifted Thierry Arbogast. Talk is cheap here, and often inane, but as a silent film, Angel-A could have been magic. show more

  • Movies often turn on slender notions worked up to look like full-fledged ideas. Once in a while, though, a notion will be fertile to begin with, a self-renewing source of delight. That's the case with Luc Besson's Angel-A. show more

  • What's maddening about Angel-A is that Besson is so brilliant with his visuals - and so in love with his two leads and the city they're parading around - that you desperately want the story, and the characters, to make some kind of emotional sense. This, however, does not happen. show more
