Mortier's latest is a seething story about two people from two very different worlds spending a life-changing night together. While there are obvious links to a certain famed Belgian cyclist, the story here is fictional, and it's better to not consider it anything close to a biography. Instead, Mortier uses this film to illustrate the crushing weight of fame, making superb use of Karakatsanis' cinematography, Leunen's editing skill and a majestic score by Soulsavers to turn Angel into a sweltering drama.
