Elegant, if a bit too reverent.
It's not always riveting, and it's not always clear, but Angels Are Made of Light manages to find several human beings, and not just by inviting us to admire our own reflections.
Life strives to grow, and flourish, amid catastrophic ruins in "Angels Are Made of Light," James Longley's stirring and gorgeous documentary about young students and teachers trying to maintain hope in Kabul.
The future is not yet written, and the brave young souls at the heart of the film offer promise that it may be less bleak.
It shines a compassionate, awe-filled light on a community doing its best to improve itself and educate its young-yet it never loses sight that this endeavor might be a pointless one as political unrest might raze their city.
It provides a needed perspective that provides a broader view outside of the war zone.
For viewers who adjust to its deliberately slow rhythms, the reward is a vivid portrait of daily life in Kabul and a rich look into childhood from the perspective of children who have every reason to expect the worst.
