Discovered in Cannes in 2002, Christophe Honoré's first film. Seventeen Times Cécile Cassard, was selected for Un Certain Regard. Since then, he hasn't stopped writing: novels, plays and screenplays. The Grand Théâtre Lumière still remembers the melodies of Love Songs, in Compétition in 2007, and those of Beloved, the closing film in 2011. Christophe Honoré returns this year in Competition with Plaire, aimer et courir vite (Sorry Angel).

"A first love and a last love" is how Christophe Honoré sums up his film. The first stirring of emotion for Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a Breton student, and one last thrill for Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps), a writer in the twilight of his life. They meet in the summer of 1990, in a resolutely pop Paris. One love, one summer, a sense of urgency.

 

But Sorry Angel is also a film that sets out to rekindle an original realism, after adapting Ovid's Metamorphoses (2014) then The Misfortunes of Sophie by the Countess de Ségur (2016). This time Christophe Honoré introduces some of his own personality, his past and his experience to his work. He calls on the Breton student he himself was in the 1990s, reading Jean-Luc Lagarce, a fan of Noir Désir, caught up in the terror of AIDS. His own desires and fears, but also those of an entire generation with its very distinct references.

 

In preparing the film, Honoré immersed his actors in the atmosphere: records, clothes, reading, even the perfumes they wore on set. For the casting, the filmmaker chose two actors who embody the freshness of French cinema: Vincent Lacoste with his deceptive nonchalant moue and Pierre Deladonchamps, whose career has exploded since he was revealed by Alain Guiraudie in Stranger by the Lake, which picked up Best Director at Un Certain Regard in 2013.
