Storyline

Fabienne, a young woman, is taken to the country woods by a group of men and shot to death. Her body is found by Gabriel, an angel who restores her life. He brings her to a cabin on the mountain. They fall in love and live together in isolation. Fabienne has no memory of her past but learns to live again with grace and beauty under the care of Gabriel. For reasons she doesn't understand, she longs to return to the city, and on the fateful day she wanders away from the protection and beauty of angelic life, she encounters the men who murdered her.

a Kafka-esque, dark fantasy
26 November 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A young woman from the city finds herself in some serious trouble with the local bad guys. She is taken to the countryside and murdered, where she is discovered and restored to life by an earthly angel Gabriel...

The story is fine, but the visuals in this film are most striking -- the look is dark, Kafka-esque, per "The Castle"-- all black and white, and shot in winter in the Canadian countryside -- so stark, sparse. And ditto for the soundtrack, which consists of hushed conversations and minimalist violin solos, all of which are spaced by prolonged silences.

If you prefer the style of meandering European art films to thrill-a-minute Hollywood blockbusters, then "L'Ange et la Femme" is for you.
