Someone on Facebook just introduced me to this very moving clip from Luc Besson’s 2005 film, Angel-A, about an angel, played by Danish actress Rie Rasmussen, who intervenes to rescue, André (played by Jamel Debbouze), a self-loathing scam artist on the verge of killing himself.
This makes me long for the days when I used to live around the corner from the Glasgow Film Theatre, where I enjoyed many fine foreign movies…
This is a great film. I saw it accidentally on cable and was blown away. It doesn’t seem to have much of a following. I’m not even certain it was ever shown in the US. Thanks for mentioning it.
International movies aren’t shown here much.
