Synopsis

Luc Besson directs an uncharacteristically minimalist tale of a hustler and an angel. Andre (Jamel Debbouze), a young Parisian hustler, has run out of luck. He's broke and in debt to his neck and his one hope - a win on the US green card lottery, has fallen through due to an unforeseen loophole. Deciding to check out early, he mounts the Pont Neuf bridge, ready to take a swan dive and make it all go away. Angel-A (Rie Rasmussen) a leggy, mesmeric blonde appears suddenly and beats him to the drop - diving in ahead of him. Panicked, instinct kicks in, and he rescues her in a desperate, flailing kerfuffle. In return, she offers her help in getting his life back on track. She's a divine intervener, it emerges, not on the bridge through chance at all. Though she's his guardian angel, their need for each other is mutual, as he finds out.
