From director Karin Jullsrud making her debut as a feature film director, BLOODY ANGELS is a thriller quite out of the ordinary - a surprising and unpredictable story about at tight knit community, a terrible crime and an untenable outcome.
In the rural village of H'tten, six months previously, a thirteen-year-old girl with Down's syndrome was raped and murdered. Now there has been another death - one of two brothers the village suspects of the girl's murder, is found drowned. The investigation is intensified, uncovering forces in the tiny community that have been kept in the dark for too long. In the process, a deep understanding develops between Nicholas Ramm, an investigator from Oslo, and Niklas, the suspect's twelve-year-old younger brother. The two are confronted by fundamental questions of personal courage and responsibility, in a film likely to upset anyone's preconceptions of human behaviour.
