Once and again: a pointless fictionalized documentary
10 December 2002 | by (Paris, Fr) – See all my reviews

Not much to say about Angela since the movie fits in the nice but not very creative category of docu-fiction. It's nicely shot, yet a little too nicely with many scenes taking advantage of casual mirrors and many scenes focusing on Angela's face. Nicely crafted Angela is a thoughtful movie not a deep one.

Maybe the director will claim she only wanted to bring this story to screen. No further ambition. And what about writing a screenplay including this true story base? That would be cheating on the simple reality of life? My dear, that's what is called cinema!

The docu-fiction Bully (2001) was deeper (less banking on some built-in sentimentalism) but to no avail. Modeled on a true story... Screen loitering at best; definitely not cinema at his best.
