Mon ange

Angel

NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES

A young invisible boy and a blind girl fall in love, in a beautifully poetic fantasy film.

Louise, overcome by sorrow after her partner mysteriously disappears, is committed to a psychiatric asylum.

In utter secrecy, she brings into the world a little boy whom she names Angel and who possesses an amazing peculiarity: he is invisible. Louise urges Angel never to reveal his existence to a world that shows a ruthless intolerance to difference. But one day, Angel meets Madeleine, a little blind girl, and falls hopelessly in love with her. Due to her blindness, Angel can love Madeleine while keeping his secret. Their love grows over the years, until the day Madeleine announces something that will turn their lives upside down: she will recover her sight.

Angel is presented by Golden Scene, with the support of the Consulate General of Belgium
