Paris, 1993. The stigma surrounding AIDS patients is fading, but the diagnosis is still terminal. Jacques, a thirty-five-year-old writer is a victim of the virus. On a trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur, a twenty-two-year-old student, and they engage in a romantic waltz: Jacque spins toward his final love, while Arthur dances to the beat of his first. They show each other new worlds and share everything in an ill-fated relationship. With great talent and boundless sensitivity, renown French director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs) traces the complexities and many faces of love in a film that owes much of its strength to the lead performances. Sorry Angel premiered at Cannes to critical acclaim.
