François Ozon, 114 mins, France / UK, 2007, 35mm. Courtesy: Dendy Films

England, 1905 is the setting for Ozon's sweeping epic that charts the radiant rise and devastating fall of florid romance writer, Angel Deverell (Romola Garai).

Beautiful, precocious, talented and above all, burningly ambitious for fame, love and a life far beyond her humble beginnings, Ozon's adaptation of Elizabeth Taylor's novel bares all the hallmarks of classic Hollywood productions of the 1930s and 1940s.

With an excellent supporting cast featuring Sam Neill, Charlotte Rampling, Lucy Russell and Michael Fassbender, Angel is full of drama, subversive sexuality and humour; an engrossing fantasy, that finds Ozon at the height of his directorial powers.

Screened in the Official Competition Berlin Film Festival. Melbourne Premiere!
