The Mark of an Angel (2008) Cert PG, 95 mins
Monday 13 July
Directed by Safy Nebbou with Sandrine Bonnaire, Catherine Frot and Antoine Chappey
Based on a true story, this film shows Elsa Valentin in the middle of a brutal divorce and custody battle when she is struck by the appearance of a pretty young girl named Lola. Her interest in the child grows into obsession, and she finds any possible excuse to be near her. When Lola’s mother Claire grows unnerved by this, Elsa admits that she believes Lola is the daughter she thought she had lost in a hospital fire seven years ago, and wants to find a way to prove it.
