          Once an intimate chronicle of a romance and a sprawling portrait of life in early 1990s France, SORRY ANGEL follows the intertwining journeys of Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps), a worldly Parisian writer, and Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a curious, carefree and much-younger universit...y student who is just beginning to live. Brought together by chance, the two men find themselves navigating a casual fling that gradually deepens into a tender, transformative bond; Deladonchamps (Stranger by the Lake) beautifully lends his hyper-articulate sophisticate a haunted tenderness, but it is Lacoste, best known for comedy, who steals the film with an unexpectedly powerful performance, bursting with vitality and intelligence.

          Its summer at Inviolata, an isolated rural estate, where an extended family of tobacco farmers toil under the rule of a domineering marchesa, and where the handsome and hard-working Lazzaro (captivating newcomer Adriano Tardiolo), a young man imbued with a saint-like innocence, i...s alternately adored and taken advantage of. When the marchesas self-absorbed son, Tancredi (Luca Chikovani) first visits the fields, he senses an opportunity, and embroils Lazzaro in an audacious plan that spirals out of control and throws the estate into a complicated chaos that takes everybody by surprise. Channelling the spirit of Pasolini, Rohrwachers fascinating, deeply affecting parable casts an ethereal, wondrous spell, and confirms her status as one of the most inventive and compelling voices in contemporary Italian cinema with this utterly transporting film experience.
