(Andělé všedního dne) Director: Alice Nellis, CZ, 2014, Czech version, 97 min
Angels - film based on a novel by Michal Viewegh Angels of everyday, is set in Prague's Nusle district. But this time the subject matter is not just life and its little dramas. The story focuses on a few intimate family members: a recently widowed young doctor; a school canteen cook and her son; a driving instructor, his wife, and their closest relatives. One thing that sets this story apart from the other stories we have become accustomed to from this author is the presence of angels - creatures that observe and sometimes try to change these building blocks of our everyday lives for the better. Angles cannot interfere openly in our lives, they can try to nudge us towards a certain outcome. People can choose how they will live their lives. The angels merely try to help them understand that every moment is precious. The angels are not supernatural beings - they are an attempt to understand others, to feel empathy and to understand what is good in humanity.
