‘Angele’ wins Michel d’Ornano prize

Film critics select Delaporte debut

BRUSSELS — “Angele et Tony” by Alix Delaporte has captured the Michel d’Ornano prize, the only honor for Gallic film given at the Deauville American Film Festival.

Now in its 36th edition, fest unspools Sept. 3-12.

Created in 1991 by the Motion Picture Assn., the Michel d’Ornano prize is given to a French debut by a panel of English-speaking film critics working in Gaul.

Pic is Delaporte’s first feature after taking home a Golden Lion from Venice in 2006 for her short “Comment on freine dans la descente.”

It unfolds in a Normandy fishing port, with an ill-matched couple brought together by a small ad yet unable to commit to romance. Clotilde Hesme and Gregory Gadebois star.

Produced by Lionceau Films, “Angele et Tony” bows in France in January 2011, through Pyramide Distribution.

It will also screen in April at L.A.’s Festival City of Lights/City of Angels.

Deauville’s full lineup will be revealed July 20.
