I saw Sorry Angel at the 2018 Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF). The first part of the movie is disjointed and one has to persevere before it starts to come together. Set in 1993, during the HIV/AIDS era in France, the story revolves around Jacques Tondelli, played by Pierre Deladonchamps, and his varied and many relationships and sexual liaisons. He's not a very likeable character and I found him somewhat stereotypically gay. Of course there's more complexity to the story than this but overall I found it tedious and overstated. Others might have a greater appreciation for the artistry of the movie however I left 30 minutes before the movie ended.
