Plaire aimer ou courir vite
Jacques is a writer living in Paris. He hasn’t turned 40 but already mistrusts that the best in life is yet to come. Arthur is a student living in Brittany. He reads and smiles a lot and refuses to think that everything in life might not be possible. Jacques and Arthur will like each other. Just like in a lovely dream. Just like in a sad story.

A deeply felt crossover drama about two gay men wrestling with incompatible ideas of love… A sincere portrait of modern love a major stride in the treatment of gay relationships on-screen.
The most emotional and understated work from French director Christophe Honoré is a touching tribute to the art and culture of early ‘90s France, charting creative obsessions young and old, and strikes a note that’s life-affirming and melancholic.
A radiant new film. Vibrant and Moving. A complex dynamic that Honoré teases out with warmth, intelligence and more than a dash of mischief. Both leads give luminous, deeply nuanced performances; it’s a pleasure to watch them fuss and flirt, then figure their way into something more meaningful. There’s also a generosity, a compassion here that feels more profound than usual.
SORRY ANGEL is one of Honore’s best. Love, death, time, desire, all that, a very adult drama. Vincent Lacoste & Pierre Deladonchamps among the best performances we’ll see this fest. La tendresse, quoi.
Christophe Honoré was born on April 10, 1970 in Carhaix-Plouguer, Finistère, France. He is a writer and director, known for LOVE SONGS (2007) and LA BELLE PERSONNE (2008). SORRY ANGEL (PLAIRE, AIMER ET COURIR VITE) (2018) is his most recent feature which premiered at Cannes.
