This British production directed by Steven Knight is about a homeless ex-special forces soldier who is on the run from a military court martial. He is psychologically disturbed, and while navigating London’s criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man’s identity — transforming into an avenging angel in the process. He meets up with a nun and the two develop a special bond – both looking for redemption in each other…..
There is a beautiful Bulgarian folk song called Malka Moma Si Se Bogu Moli and sung by Neli Andreeva with the Philip Koutev Choir:
Malka moma si se Bogu moli: Little maiden prays to God:
Daj mi, Bože, oči golubovi Give me, oh God, the eyes of a dove,
Daj mi, Bože, krilca sokolovi Give me, oh God, the wings of a falcon,
Da si forknam otvăd beli Dunav To fly away over the white Danube
Da si najda momče spored mene To find myself a lad worthy of me
Ču ja Gospod, The Lord has heard her,
stori oči golubovi, made (her) the eyes of a dove,
krilca sokolovi, the wings of a falcon,
ta i dade krilca sokolovi, so he gave her the wings of a falcon
ta si najde momče spored neja. and she found herself a lad worthy of her.
