Engelen 'The Angel' (Noruega 2009 - Margreth Olin)[Norwegian][Swedish English Español Subs]



ENGLISH

Lea grows up in a home in which she is given no protection. From being a cheerful, curious little girl, Lea sees her life brutally change when her mother returns to her ex-husband Ole. The death dance between the two adults damages the child growing up between them. Lea turns to inebriation in order to cope with everyday life in her family. Then Lea gives birth to her daughter Sonja. She wants to make a clean break with her family and start a new life. She wants to take care of her child, provide her with the protection she herself was deprived of. But Lea soon realizes she is lacking this ability, and consequently has to make an impossible decision.

 Norwegian writer/director Margreth Olin makes her feature debut with this deeply personal drama tracing a troubled young girl's descent into addiction. Originally conceived as a documentary, Angel centers on the story of Lea, whose peaceful life was forever changed following the untimely death of her beloved father. Shortly thereafter, Lea's mother Madeline reignites the romance with her old flame Ole, an abusive alcoholic whose influence over the young girl proves profoundly damaging. As the situation in the household gradually deteriorates, the roles of mother and daughter begin to invert. But the burden of caring for her mother takes a heavy toll on the crestfallen teen, and in time Lea turns to heroin as a means of escaping her problems. When Lea gives birth to her own daughter, she begins to notice the early warning signs of a troubling pattern.
