Engelen des doods

Director(s): Leo De Boer
  1 win.

Some people are so beautiful

it makes them sick.

The delicate child

that takes the whole world in,

and who cannot

close itself off from anything.

I have a friend like that.

I once promised that no matter

what happened to her,

one day I would pass her story on.

You must promise me that, she said.

Promise me that she who comes

after me, learns who I am.

Or who I was.

I promised her that.

I promised to tell her story

like she would have told it herself.

Had she could?

I'll have that and 20 cigarettes.

We'll be there soon.

- They won't let us in.

- Don't worry. They will.

Are you sober?

What kind of question is that?

You're laughing?

You're in a really bad mood.

"You and me", mother!

How do I look?

- Need a hand?

- Don't be rude.

- Hi.

- Welcome.

I'm sorry we're a bit late.

There was a queue at the gas station.

Look, Lea!

Look how big she is now.

Give her some time,

then you can hold her.


- It's Lea.

- Not Lea. Mummy.

We don't smoke inside the house.

Because of the child.


I can change her diaper

and let you talk for a while.

Change diaper!

She looks so sad. In her eyes.

She's mostly quite happy.


Do you want to come along

and watch him change her diaper?

This isn't so easy for Lea.

I can come and watch.

Twinkle, twinkle little star...

She's been so terribly

nervous for this.

She hardly slept last night.

I think it's time for Lea to leave.

Mummy loves you, sweetie.

- You shouldn't have brought her here.

- We've waited for three months!

Do you know how long three months is

when you are 1 year old?

Do you know what a big part

of your life that is?

Did you know I wasn't

allowed at her birthday?

Yes, you do know!

You were there.

I asked Lea what

the first thing she can remember is.

I remember mum's laugh,

she answered.

And her smell.

I think I saw mum the way dad did.

You're so beautiful.

Come. You mustn't get sick.

There was something about her

I couldn't quite grasp.

As if, it was her

that needed taking care of.

Once upon a time there was

a princess.

And then it started raining.

And everyone got wet.

Then horses came flying in the air.

Are you sleeping, daddy?

God exists in all things, dad said.

God is a thief, I thought.

The thief that steals the very best.

Do you want to give daddy a hug?

We'll be back soon.

It was quiet for a long time.

One day Ole came.

He had been mum's old boyfriend.

They had been engaged once.

God had sent someone

to help me look after her.

- Pretty flaps.

- Flaps? They're called lashes.

Come, come!

She misses her dad.

And you miss him too.

You promised to get rid of his things

when I moved in.

They're just gifts I've received.

What difference does it make?

Everything here reminds you of him.

You're even wearing his jacket.

There will always be things

that remind us of him.

We had a child together.


Take off his jacket.

Take his jacket off!

Madelene, I didn't mean it.

It hurts when you

go around with his jacket.

Go to bed, Ole.

Let's talk tomorrow.

Ole, are you all right?

What have you drawn, Lea?

Can I see it?

Is that your cat?

You didn't quite finish it.

Once upon a time there was

a princess who had a horse.

And then it started raining.

Once upon a time, there was princess.

Then it started raining.

Everything will be fine, sweetie.


It's going to be all right.

I called her Violet.

The violets are the softest.

I got her from my dad, and

I promised him to take care of her.

Um, always said Violet

was run over by the train.

Ask me again

about the first thing, I remember.
