Demanding but wonderful film
16 May 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

In terms of drawing a direct and raw emotional response to the characters, Angel Baby is probably the best film I have ever seen. Because the characters go through some torrid times, the viewer is drawn into some very unpleasant territory. But I emerged emotionally fulfilled, and really feeling as though I had connected with the mental state of the characters. If this is what you seek from a movie, then please see this one.
