All of Isa’s possessions may fit in her backpack, but she lives through hard times with a positive attitude. Freshly arrived at Lille, she becomes friends with Marie, an outcast like Isa but for different reasons—she is unsociable, hyper sensitive and rebelling against her working class background.

MUBI's take

Élodie Bouchez and Natasha Régnier shared Best Actress at Cannes for their magnetic performances in this searing debut from Erick Zonca. Capturing striking psychological details through an acutely observational style, The Dreamlife of Angels is a compassionate portrait of a volatile friendship.
