Angel (Greek: ?, translit. Angelos) is a 1982 Greek drama film directed by Giorgos Katakouzinos.[1] 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.[2]


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.
