One of a kind.
1 December 1999 | by (Hamilton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Marie Baie Des Anges is an absolutely beautiful film. It's one of a kind. The only other film ever made like it was Harmony Korine's Gummo. It's a montage of disturbing images. Though there really is no plot, the film has somewhat of a story. But when the film is this good who needs a plot? I admit in the last 10 minutes of the film I didn't know what was going on, but that makes it all the more interesting. I highly recommend this film.
