Angel (Greek: ?, translit. Angelos) is a 1982 Greek drama film directed by Giorgos Katakouzinos. The film was selected as the Greek entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 55th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
A young gay man in Athens, Angelos, keeps his sexual identity a secret from his family. He falls hard for a rough sailor, Mihalis, and moves in with him. Mihalis convinces Angelos to dress in drag and work a corner with other transvestites. With the money, Mihalis buys a fancy motorcycle and hangs out in bars. By day, Angelos is in the army; at night, he is a prostitute. At Christmas, he visits his grandmother, and learns that both she and his mother were also prostitutes. A crisis ensues when neighborhood men beat up Angelos: his family is informed, the army discharges him, and his father goes crazy. Then Mihalis wants Angelos gone.
