This film begins with a surreal take on Adam and Eve featuring two naked young children frolicking in a beachfront Eden.
From there the action switches to the interior of a dark castle where the freaky aristocrat Don Jacobo presides over a bizarre procession of monks and assorted mystics.

  • francisca bacon's rating of the film Angels and Cherubs

    2,5 Weirdish, ceremonious/-ial. The 2nd film in 2 day painting vampires as down-to-earth, mercantile jerks seeking to augment their estate, not as ennui-fraught creatures lamenting their fun-depleted and prosaic endlessness. They sound like banging present day developers or nuptial businessmen! Yucks. The humanist agenda lurks in watermark: the fact that aristocracy alone or the nouveaux riches afford a sanguine diet
