Very Surprising!
17 August 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Tar Angel is a surprisingly engaging little Canadian movie that I've never heard of before, yet I am usually up to date on these things.

An Algierian family are all set for the final step to becoming full fledged Canadians when all of a sudden, the son they thought they knew, turns out to have plenty of secrets up his sleeve. His father, in a desperate race to save his son, has to figure out which is more important.. His son, or his citizenship? So the father and his son's girlfriend take a Northern Quebec tour (woo fun) to find him and figure out what he's up to, which leads to a somewhat harsh conclusion.

Everything about this movie is great. The acting is surprisingly excellent, and is quite well done. The only big problem I had with this movie, is that there is this big hole in the middle, when the father and the son's girlfriend go off to try to find him, the subplot, if that is indeed what it was, was there to kill time, as the story suddenly drags, but once they do find him, it immediately picks up again.

Aside from that, and some minor plot holes that the script-writer was hoping you wouldn't find, this movie is a pretty good watching.
