  • A movie from Tajikistan director Jamshed Usmonov, ANGEL ON THE RIGHT follows the fortunes of Hamro (Maruf Pulodzoda) as he returns to his native country after 10 years spent living in Moscow. Having languished in a Russian jail for most of the time, the former criminal hopes to return to Tajikistan to help his ailing mother who is close to death. Unfortunately he receives a rather rude awakening when he discovers that the criminal underclass lurking in his home town hasn't forgotten about the sizeable debts Hamro owes them, so he attempts to sell his mother's house before landing in more hot water. He also discovers that he has a 10-year-old son, tries to woo his mother's nurse, and avoids the local Mafiosos at all costs. Usmonov steers his cast through some darkly comic material as the plot unfolds, with the movie providing an invaluable object lesson in how not to live your life, as well as plenty of laughs along the way.

    "Usmonov's rather downbeat drama is leavened by deadpan humour and unexpected moments of lyricism."
