Angels can fall
13 April 2000 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

We are not far from a very good movie, excellent plot, black ambiance,... but it could have been better. Marseille is barely shown (a pity) and the actors are a bit too acting.

The film starts with a funny touch and then develops into a tragedy... this is often what life brings you. A cuckled and sodden policeman lives with his daughter and an older gay private detective, he meets a young, innocent looking girl, and then his life takes a U Turn. He finds himself in the middle of something bigger and more dangerous, involving his boss...

Unexpected plot really but a treatment which leaves to be desired.
