Koen Mortier, CZAR Film and Paradiso Filmed Entertainment released the first images of Un Ange, the opening film of the 12th Film Festival of Ostend, Belgium. The film will be released in Belgian theatres on September 19th.

 

The long awaited third feature film by Koen Mortier (Ex-Drummer, 22nd of May) is based on the novel Monologue of Someone Who Got Used to Talking to Herself by Dimitri Verhulst (The Misfortunates).

Un Ange follows the encounter of a prostitute, Fae, and a world famous athlete, Thierry. During his vacation in Senegal, he falls head over heels for the African beauty. They find dignity and hope with each other, wanting to get out of their troublesome situations.

But more important than these mutual desires, they find love. Until, later in the evening, Thierry starts behaving strangely, under the influence of substances. Fae is forced to leave him but when she discovers that Thierry has passed away the next morning, she's arrested, despite her innocence. To move on with her life, she must return to the place where it all started. 


"Fae and Thierry both want to get out of their sunken holes. I wanted to show these two worlds where hope and fears lead parallel. That's why I chose to portray a balance of those two worlds where their dreams and fears both appear", Koen Mortier says. 


 

The film features Vincent Rottiers (Dheepan, Le monde nous appartient), Fatou N'Diaye (My Voice), Paul Bartel (Les Géants, Michael Kohlhaas) and Aïcha Cissé (The Racer and the  Jailbird). Director of Photography is Nicolas Karakatsanis (I Tonya,Triple 9) and Nico Leunen (Home, Lost River) was on board as editor. British band 'Soulsavers' provided the music and acclaimed photographer Stephan Vanfleteren debuted as set photographer on set in Belgium and Senegal. 

Un Ange is a production by Koen Mortier and Eurydice Gysel for CZAR Film in coproduction with Eve Commenge for Anonymes Films, Marc van Warmerdam for Graniet Film, Proximus, Telenet and Canvas. 'Un Ange' was made with the support of the VAF / Flemish Film Fund by Flemish Minister of Culture Sven Gatz and the Dutch Film Fund (NFF).

The film was also supported by economical funds Screen Brussels and Screen Flanders, an initiative of Minister of Economics Philippe Muyters and Minister of Culture Sven Gatz. BNP Paribas Fortis Film Finance invested in the film as Belgian Tax Shelter-investor.
