Review by the Indy Film Library

The Indy Film Library in Amsterdam reviewed The Angel of History and gave it four out of five stars. I like the review very much, even though it unfortunately doesn't mention the music of Matija Strniša:

What I liked best: "To make a short documentary film that manages to praise Europe for opening its borders inwards and at the same time calls on it to open up more in future to those beyond its borders is a seemingly impossible balancing act, but one that the angel of history performs with sovereignty. Eric Esser and his team have condensed a subject that many would have difficulty making a coherent film in 90 minutes into 11 minutes."

Yay! Besides, I think it's the first time anyone ever compared me to Werner Herzog. 😳
