It's not a simple movie. To understand "Angelus", you have to know something about Upper Silesian culture and language (if you see the movie in original). It's quite different from the official Polish language, for example to address a woman "chopie", which (correctly) is a masculine designation.
In this movie you can see the story of several men and their wives. One unmarried is the boy, which has to play the role of innocent Angelus, who should save the world. It's unrealistic, but familiar. Set design is authentic. I recommend the movie to everyone who wants to explore the spiritual expression of Central Europe.
