The Dream Life of Angels


An award-winning French drama. Two young women meet when working in the same grimy shop for small wages and suffering the same daily barrage of verbal abuse and degradation. They end up flat-sitting an apartment together, and a friendship develops. Things get more complex when one gets into a bad relationship, and the other begins reading the flat-owner's diary, who is in a coma.
French with English subtitles.

Corlius Jooste: A poetic depiction of relationships. A life affirming experience. A unique sensitive performance by the actor playing ''Charlie''.
