We're big fans of Luc Besson's films, whether he's lensing an over the top Space Opera (The Fifth Element) or an offbeat Heidi meets Pulp Fiction story (The Professional). Here he tells the story of a woman who fell to Earth and the down-and-out gambler who breaks her fall in a very French version of It's A Wonderful Life. Well, vaguely like it. A little. Did we mention it's very French? Which, with the incredibly sexy Angela (Rie Rasmussen), is a wonderful thing indeed. I was going to review this myself, but Gayle saw it first when it arrived...and that was the end of the discussion. - Ern(Theatrical Release Date: 05/25/2007 - DVD: 11/20/2007)

From official release/information:

From Luc Besson comes a story about a down-on-his-luck gambler tries to drown himself, he winds up rescuing a gorgeous and mysterious blonde. As they set out on a mission across Paris, he discovers that his smart, spontaneous, sexy companion may really be heaven-sent. SYNOPSIS: From the director of THE PROFESSIONAL and THE FIFTH ELEMENT comes a stunning, sexy tribute to the healing power of love. When André, a down-on-his-luck gambler, dives into the icy Seine to end it all, he winds up instead rescuing Angela, a gorgeous, mysterious blonde. Filled with renewed passion for life, they set out to settle André's scores as they wander the City of Lights. Along the way, André finds himself, but he still has some questions about his leggy, lovely companion -can she really be as heavenly as she seems? Filled with wit, warmth and eye-popping visuals, ANGEL-A shows just how high you can soar when passion takes flight.
