Robbie is a young man with a criminal past. For its misconducts it is condemned. To avoid the jail they have to be three hundred hours of social works. It turns into premature father when its girl, Leonie gives birth to a male. On having realized the social works, it meets another two boys, Albert and Rhino, and a young woman, Mo. With Henry, the social educator, they will initiate an adventure knowing a whisky distillery. Robbie will demonstrate to have a few big talent in the tasting meetings. Will be able to be useful this don Robbie and being capable of redoing its life, leaving behind its past?
The movie starts with a succession of histories of condemnations for criminal acts of different personages, some of which avoid the jail after the sorrow is exchanged for hours of social works for the community.
Robbie (Paul Brannigan) is a young man who lives in Glasgow and who, like so many people others, is giving bumps without finding its place. An inflamed blood feud led him to dividing it facing another young man of its quarter. For the above mentioned motive they sentence him to social works. Three hundred hours with which it will coincide with a group, forming a band with Albert (Gary Maitland), Rhino (William Ruane) and Mo (Jasmine Riggins). At the head and since social educator finds Harry (John Henshaw) a good-natured man who tries to channel this peculiar group.
Harry feels weakness for Robbie. It sees in him a little that makes him different to the others. A good day invites him to a Whisky glass. This will be the starter point for Robbie's new life. They will visit a distillery and little by little it will discover that Robbie possesses a special gift at the time of looking at the broths and determining even the mark. A gift within reach of few ones. But that alone does not give to him to eat. Unless it finds a work where to develop this potential. Robbie appears espabilado and it will design a plan to be done by a fortune. Its recent parenthood has made him reflect and understand that its son deserves a future removed from the foul-ups into which it gets with its handle.
Ken Loach has us used to movies of social court, a critical movies with this social reality. It has shown that he likes the small dramas about personages desclasados, excluded from the society, for maladjusted or pushed back. In its movies it mixes the drama with the daily comedy, centring on the personal relations (friends, couples, family). In this occasion it is a friends band that they try to go out afloat. On having been a father, Robbie, the protagonist, changes the life to him. On having had its child in its arms, he swears that he will not compromise its future again giving wallops to the others (or you give them or they give them to you). And it will have to avoid a few difficulties of carrying out its promise.
The part of the angels is an entertaining comedy. The relations between the personages are very believable and they work very well. Paul Laverty is the scriptwriter habitual in the movies of K.L. and one notices that everything passes almost to the perfection. He was waiting for more of this movie or was expecting for it from its director. The starter, previously alluded, me descentró a little. A book, a movie have to, it has to start in such a way that they catch you. In the books if this does not happen, you close it, give hand other in expectation of finding a good story that they entertain to you in the next hours. In the room you cannot go away (fool you would be, since the things are not to be throwing the money), you hope I hope for shoe repair. And sometimes it happens, as in The part of the angels. Bad beginning but good end (eye, that this in this case is not good at all; the happy end is evident in excess). Between averages we have seen an entertaining comedy with a hilarious action plan. Pero de Ken Loach waits for his something more than the entertainment. It has us used to presenting the raw reality to us with a brave exposition in its social denunciation. The current moment through that we live, with so much cuts away and so many labor insecurity, it does not come badly at all to happen a little bit agreeably in the movies and to forget us of so many penury.
A movie with a valuable sense of humor, with some dramatic dyes and that he reminds to us that there is always a possible way of exit although sometimes it is about the illegality. Kent Loach wants to transmit an encouraging unproved statement to us in favor of the second opportunities for those that has had them to live in an environment where the misfortune and the struggle for the work and, finally, for the survival it is the common currency. An ambience that is fundamental in the growth and evolution of the person. In the end, the director of what it paints the portrait is the reality. We all want the same: to live worthily, to have a work, to deal with a family offering them the best thing that is inside your possibilities and to surround you with friends and persons with whom to share this life.
The meaning of the title can allude to this part of angel that each one we can take inside us or also, used like a beautiful metaphor, to this portion … Not, I believe that I must not reveal that. Go to the movies and discover which it is «the part of the angels».
