Colette, lovely and vulnerable prostitute, accepts to take care of her unknown colleague's boy. She, herself, needs a child to make her loved ex return to her. So she's having two problems to solve at one time - to find a suitable "father" of her kid and to get off hand of Billy. Meanwhile, the relationship between Colette and Billy is developing, you just don't know in which way. Then, when she cannot get rid of Billy and realizes her ex has another women, the things between "Billy et Colette" are now quite transparent. Written by Martin Fritsch

A French twist on Cassavetes' "Gloria"
15 July 2006 | by allen214-3See all my reviews

Going into it, I had no idea "Mon Ange" took its plot from John Cassavetes' "Gloria" that had already been subjected to an American remake. It falls short of the original, especially lacking in suspense and action, but it adds a French twist not in "Gloria" which, though not very successful, would have created serious censorship and distribution problems in the U.S. What made "Gloria" especially impressive was the brilliant performance by Gena Rowlands, and while not quite as stunning, Vanessa Paradis turns in a great performance here in the lead role that, on its own, makes "Mon Ange" well worth a viewing. Pity she isn't being used more.
