A record-breaking smash in the Czech Republic, nominated for two Czech Lion Awards, ANGEL OF THE LORD 2 is the sequel to the popular Czech fairy tale about the angel Petronel who works at Heaven’s door, but is convinced that he deserves a better job. His eternal tempter, devil Uriah, provokes Petronel by saying, “Just pick an apple from the tree of knowledge and you will know what only God knows and the way to well-deserved recognition.” In the skirmish, the rare fruit rolls off to the Earth and the scatterbrained angel and his nemesis must go find the apple in the world of people.

No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. A remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display at London’s Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. Cinema-goers visit the sites immortalised in Canaletto’s views – from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.
