Angèle et Tony

Director: Alix Delaporte

Cast: Clotilde Hesme, Grégory Gadebois, Evelyne Didi, and Jérôme Huguet

Odd couple romance involving Angèle (Clotilde Hesme), a fierce young woman with a criminal past and Tony (Grégory Gadebois), a sensitive coarse fisherman from a fishing village in Normandy. Angèle dates random strangers and when she meets Tony they begin a relationship although cagey at first, soon blossoms. Eager to leave her parole hostel, she accepts an offer from Tony to work alongside his formidable mother, Myriam (Evelyne Didi), selling what he catches from a quayside stall. Taking up residence with the family on the Normandy coast, she is gradually accepted into the fishing community, while at the same time battling to play a bigger role in the life of her estranged son, Yohan. Will all work out well? See the movie to find out and apart from a few red herrings in the plot the overall performances in this garlic shanty love story are très bon.
