François Ozon United Kingdom, 2007

Material Salva+ion's rating of the film Angel

This film must be enjoyed for what it really is; an ode to kitsch melodrama and period romance exacerbated to it's maximum as a flamboyant caricature of the genre. I was also amused by the fact that the film seems to work like a matryoshka: a "Pink film" based on a "Pink novel" (by Liz Taylor) about a young "Pink" novelist. All deliberately excessive and camp. Not at all desynchronized with Ozon's repertoire.
