Plaire, aimer et courir vite (Sorry Angel)

Feature Film France 2018

1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps), a thirty-five-year old bisexual writer, is in Rennes to present one of his novels. Here he casually meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), an aspiring young director, inside a cinema. Despite the age gap somethings clicks between the two men: Arthur realizes he has fallen in love, but Jacques, who lives with his small child, suffers from Aids and knows that these new feelings have nowhere to go. The movie is partly autobiographical. The screenplay, written by Christophe Honoré, sets the story in the '90s where Arthur the student could be identified, also chronologically, with the director himself. Humour and lightness always come to the rescue, even in the darkest, crudest moments of the story. It is interesting to note that Denys Podalydès was chosen to play the part of Jacques's friend/former boyfriend and colleague, the first one to learn about Jacques's illness.
