One word... 'Hopelessness'
12 June 1999 | by (Jamul, CA) – See all my reviews

'Marie Baie des Anges' is a gorgeous and tragic film. It's the story of two young people caught in a drain of circumstances, destined to meet at the bottom. Hope is not to be found anywhere for these two except in each other. It takes sacrificing everything for them to see that.

This movie truly touched me. There is rarely a "happily ever after" in life, and this film is a sock in the face to those who believe that there is. Disaster follows these two very closely, even at the height of their love.

This is one of those movies that sinks in slowly, but sinks in very deep. Halfway through, you'll be bored, and want to shut it off. Don't do it. Watch the entire film (in one sitting), and it will stick with you for the rest of your days.

10/10
