A very nice and touching film for the whole family, produced by the journalists of the famous "Tygodnik Powszechny" weekly, prestigious magazine of the Polish liberal catholics. Great debut both by the director Artur Wiecek and Ewa Kaim, actress of the National Old Theatre in Krakow, for whom this is the first major movie role.
The great thing about angel Giordano, who visits Krakow, is that everything is brand new for him, even the very basic things like the radio, a car or a cow. He helps us to realise, that the world around us is really impressing though we quickly get used to it and we don't pay attention any more.
The discussions between Giordano and his friend are very interesting. She is just a human so she has many questions and doubts but no answers. He is an angel so he is certain that the heaven really exists and God isn't just an idea of some other people.
And I very much admire the quote from "Highlander's Philosophy" by Jozef Tischner, that's being shown in the film: "Don't look for truth, look for friends". I thing this entire movie is a great example of how a philosopher can inspire film makers.
