“In one word, it’s a miracle,” said Strach. “Audiences fortunately do happily make time for Czech films. They want to be carried away by a clasping and caressing of earthy humanity, kind-heartedness and humour. And that’s what Anděl Páně 2 delivers,” he added.
The first film, Anděl Páně, was released in 2005. It slowly became a modern-day classic among Czech audiences. The movie follows the adventures of an angel who has screwed up in heaven, causing him to be exiled to Earth, where he is incarnated as a beggar.
