This angel is on a mission from God...
21 June 2012 | by brzostekSee all my reviews

While Hollywood has a number of movies about angels, Polish cinema has a couple. Angel in Krakow is film about an angel named Giordano (Krzysztof Globisz) who is sent by his superiors on a mission to Earth to help its people. They believe Giordano is the perfect one to send to bring some cheer and hope to the people because he likes to spend most of his time mingling with those in purgatory. After getting instructed on the basics of the ways of the physical world and how to interact with people, he is sent on his way.

Although Giordano was supposed to get sent to Holland, a slightly jealous angel sends him to Poland instead -- giving him a more difficult task. Giordano takes it all in stride and is thrilled by everything before him. As Giordano interacts with people and the world they live in, which are all new experiences to him, we get quite a show. While his demeanor is a combination of naive, honest and innocent, Giordano also has this "just born yesterday" way about him that is hilarious. His actions are almost childlike, but give one pause to see how we take everyday things for granted. Furthermore, he seems like everything and his excitement over mundane things like a passing train, a cow eating grass on the side of the road or just riding in a car listening to music get funny reactions from those who observe him.

Without a doubt, Angel in Krakow is family-friendly and would rated "PG" by American standards. It is an enjoyable comedy, but also has a few serious moments, such as the ending which sets the stage for the sequel Angel in Love. Although the film is about angels, Heaven and God, it is not an overly religious film. If you are looking for a humorous film for the entire family, Angel in Krakow has something for everyone.
