Angel of the North

A Feature film by Jean Michel Roux

Production year : 2017

    Synopsis

    A 1903 Finnish painting represents two children carrying an angel on a stretcher.
    This image is an enigma because its author has never explained it. 
    Today, The Wounded Angel is the Finnish people’s favorite painting, and acts like a catharsis for them. 
    To understand the image’s power of fascination, the film undertakes an investigation throughout the country. It questions the mysteries of the human soul, of death and the existence of angels. 
    Melancholy, hope, humanism, and Nordic shamanism come together to resolve the enigma of The Wounded Angel
    An investigation that gathers together confessions and symbolist visions.
