With Angel, released in France in March 2007, François Ozon's cinema has clearly shifted in a new direction, the exact nature and implications of which it is hard to pinpoint. Ozon's first two decades of filmmaking have offered audiences contact with one of the most dynamic forces to have emerged out of French cinema in the post-New Wave period. The Ozon cycle from 1993 to 2005 explores events and situations that blow their protagonists to smithereens, prodding them towards reassemblage in radically new environs, pulling them in and out of familiar and deeply unfamiliar frames, experimenting constantly with the all-pervasive prodding of change. Ozon's cinema prior to Angel has been a cinema concerned with the recording of the metamorphoses wrought in human life by the intervention of forces beyond human control.
