Delightful Comedy, 29 May 2006
Author: Ruafo from Karlsruhe, Germany

I must admit, I was worried. The first directorial effort by Luc Besson after 6 years, and Besson having produced (and written) movies in between that can IMHO be only described as crap. No need to worry however: Angel-A is simply a delightful film. Expertly framed by Thierry Arbogast it presents a very simply story in a genuinely funny and original way. Both Jamel Debbouze and Rie Rasmussen are perfectly cast and seem to be having a lot of fun playing their respective parts. While one could say that the general setup of the picture is hardly new, it really doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the film or the underlying story. The film doesn't present many twists and turns, the ending can be foreseen about halfway through the film. The joy of getting there however makes up for any of the afore mentioned problems.

Now, please Monsieur Besson: Don't make us wait 6 years for the next live-action picture!
