  1. With its mystical mumbo jumbo and even a helpful beam of celestial light in one scene, A Rumor of Angels is a kind of cinematic comfort food for an undemanding audience.

    Were it not for the presence of higher-level acting talent, A Rumor of Angels would have been a banal TV movie.
  3. A predictable tearjerker whose main redeeming feature is that you don't actually see any of the angels in the title.

    Despite good acting from the entire cast, yarn is a bit dull and predictable, straining too hard to convey its spiritual message.
  5. 40
    A Rumor of Angels beats its wings furiously, only to sink back into spiritualist goo.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and others of this nature as a way to turn off my brain distracted by all the loud, violent and sexy types or the horror genre, maybe because I am older, but I have always loved these types and believe they have a place in the world of cine. Vanessa shines in this and I am so glad she is still around to make these movies. Full Review »
