The Dreamlife of Angels
La vie revée des anges
Eric Zonca’s unvarnished portrait of street life has lost none of its edge.
Dir Erick Zonca
With Élodie Bouchez, Natacha Régnier, Grégoire Colin, Patrick Mercado
Arriving on the streets of Lille, penniless drifter Isa (Bouchez) becomes fast friends with secure-seeming sweatshop worker Marie (Régnier). But their friendship is strained when Marie falls for a callously manipulative, wealthy womaniser (Colin). Bouchez and Régnier rightly shared the Best Actress prize at Cannes for their searing performances in this gripping, tragic tale of lives lived on the margins.
