L.A. Premiere! ANGEL AT SEA, 2009, Insomnia, 86 min. Dir. Frederic Dumont. Bruno, an overworked bureaucrat based at a lighthouse in southern Morocco, is severely depressed. When Bruno confides in his young son Louis that he is on the brink of doing something terrible to himself, the boy is bluntly awakened to the realities of responsibility, protection and deep personal sadness. Shot with exquisite attention to the nuances of childhood confusion, director Frederic Dumont's lovely debut was dubbed by Variety "gorgeously lensed... strongly acted... first-rate."
