Angels in movies
Why do we make movies with angels:
Most people think, that movies where angels are acting is very exciting. I think that it`s because, many people think "heaven, God and angles" is a bit to much to consider from time to time, but when it`s in a movie it`s much easier to handel. An other reason is that a movie with for example an angel, "connects" us to spiritual.
