Written by the director, the story of Sorry Angel revolves around an encounter between two characters. Jacques Tondelli is an author who lives in Paris. He is not even 40 but is already suspicious of life to the extent that it prevents him from imagining that the best is yet to come. Further west, near Rennes, lives Arthur Prigent. He is a student who reads and smiles a lot, and who is in no doubt that he has every reason to be hopeful. Jacques and Arthur will like each other.

Produced by Philippe Martin and David Thion for Les Films PelléasSorry Angel is being co-produced by Arte France Cinéma. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also being supported by the CNC’s advance on receipts and the Brittany region. The shoot is scheduled to last eight weeks, wrapping on 3 August, and will take place in Brittany (Binic and Rennes), Paris and Amsterdam. The French distribution will be handled by Ad Vitam, while the international sales have been entrusted to MK2
