Intriguing, Inspiring and Inviting
20 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"An Angel for May" is the kind of film that I'll want to see again and again. One could call it a British "It's a Wonderful Life." The film is intriguing, inspiring, and inviting, a study in contrast and coming of age. It shows a wonderful juxtaposition of the 21st century and the WWII era. The Yorkshire countryside, as portrayed in the film, is lovely, a stark contrast with the effects of the war on England. There are also the contrasts of old vs. young and tough vs. gentle. The acting is quite good: the children playing the lead roles are fabulous, and I'm always a fan of Tom Wilkinson. Some of the special effects are naive -- the WWII planes in flight are not very authentic-looking, for example; and what bombardier in his right mind would bomb an empty moor? But all in all, this is a great "feel good" film, a story that can make you think about the purpose of your life in its time and place.
