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

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.
