One of the best movies I have ever seen. The "Beauty-and-the-Beast" contrast between the diminutive Algerian-French con artist, and the towering Danish angel is incredibly arresting. Magnificent acting by this duo. Remember, Rie Rasmussen learned enough French in 8 months to play her role! The decision to film in black and white (like the movie, "Frantz") was a good one. Somehow, it makes for a timeless quality.

This film is an artful and inventive fable about a washed-up con artist who on the brink of suicide saves a woman in like straits who jumps off a bridge in Paris before he has the chance to do so himself. What could have been a maudlin and sentimental storyline is transformed by the stunning performance of Rie Rasmussen, an extraordinarily beautiful Danish actress. Along with her role and some exquisite cinematography of Parisian landscapes, the film develops into an enchanting journey of self-discovery both for Andre and surprisingly enough at the end of the film for Angel-A as well.
