2018 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 3 – Christophe Honoré’s Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite)

Only his second time in the competition (he was there in 2007 with Les chansons d’amour), Christophe Honoré has moonlighted with the Cannes film festival — and he also played in the Directors’ Fortnight with Dans Paris (2006). His tenth feature film Sorry Angel which is an awkward translation from a much better Plaire, aimer et courir vite sees Stranger by the Lake‘s Pierre Deladonchamps match up with the younger Vincent Lacoste and the senior Denis Podalydès in this slice of life drama in set in the 90’s Paris.

An complementary film to last year’s comp offering BPM, while a couple of critics think this will be among the best of the com, the panel consider this one of the filmmaker’s better, more recent offerings to date and it may be due to the filmmaker’s loose soft treatment.
