Not since Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire has black and white photography looked so colourful as it does in Luc Besson's romantic comedy Angel-A. The success of the movie is helped in no small way by the image of statuesque Rie Rasmussen confronting pint sized Jamel Debbouze.

The dreamy soundtrack for Angel-A is provided by Norwegian singer-songwriter Anja Garbarek. Whilst she occasionally strays into the trip-hop territories previously occupied by Bjork and Emiliana Torrini, the elfin Anja holds her own and produces a very appealing and pretty soundtrack for a beautiful film.
