26 of #52FilmsByWomen: Ange & Gabrielle


Ange & Gabrielle (2015, written and directed by Anne Giafferi)

[No. 26 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen (halfway point!)]

Almost like Lolo, this is another French comedy about two single parents with teenage children meeting each other. But the premise here is different, as the reason that these two people met in the first place was because Ange’s (Patrick Bruel) son has gotten Gabrielle’s (Isabelle Carré) daughter pregnant. Gabrielle tries to convince Ange to convince his son to take responsibility for the baby. This is especially hard for Ange as he has never even met his son before.

The story is largely about how people come to grips with parenthood, and how the lives of people get bound together by their children. This is a very charming comedy, and I probably like this more than Lolo. The chemistry between Isabelle Carré and Patrick Bruel is fantastic.
