ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at two clips from writer/director Luc Besson’s new fantasy/romantic comedy Angel-A, opening in theaters on Friday, May 25. The Sony Pictures Classics release stars Jamel Debbouze, Rie Rasmussen, Olivier Claverie, Gilbert Melki, Kate Nauta and Serge Riaboukine.
In the film, down-on-his-luck petty criminal Andre (Debbouze) has reached the end of his rope. Irreversibly in debt to a local gangster, with no one to turn to, his only solution is to plunge himself into the Seine. Just as he is perched to do so, a fellow bridge-jumper beats him to the water. Diving in, he saves Angela (Rasmussen), a beautiful, statuesque and mysterious woman. As they pull themselves out the water, the two form a bond and venture into the streets of Paris determined to get Andre out of the hole he has found himself in.
