Koen Mortier, CZAR Film and Paradiso Filmed Entertainment released the first images of 'Un Ange', the opening film of the 12th Film Festival of Ostend, Belgium. The long awaited third feature film by Koen Mortier ('Ex-Drummer, '22nd of May') is based on the novel 'Monologue of Someone Who Got Used to Talking to Herself' by Dimitri Verhulst ('The Misfortunates'). The film will be released in Belgian theatres on September 19th.

'Un Ange’ follows the encounter of a prostitute, Fae, and a world famous athlete, Thierry. During his vacation in Senegal, he falls head over heels for the African beauty. They find dignity and hope with each other, wanting to get out of their troublesome situations. 
 
But more important than these mutual desires, they find love. Until, later in the evening, Thierry starts behaving strangely, under the influence of substances. Fae is forced to leave him but when she discovers that Thierry has passed away the next morning, she’s arrested, despite her innocence. To move on with her life, she must return to the place where it all started. 

“Fae and Thierry both want to get out of their sunken holes. I wanted to show these two worlds where hope and fears lead parallel. That’s why I chose to portray a balance of those two worlds where their dreams and fears both appear”, Koen Mortier says.
