Ttwelve-year-old boy Dennis P lives in Copenhagen with his mother. Since the death of his father, his mother has been both depressed and overprotective. At school he struggles to cope with a mean and obsessive teacher, and the girl he likes seems to be more interested in his best friend than him. One day he walks into a church and, expecting little effect, exclaims his wishes of better luck at home and at school. Miraculously, an angel who looks a lot like Dennis’ father appears and presents him the gift of a pair of angel wings. From then on, Dennis can literally get anything he points at, changing the behaviour of other people as he sees fit. It’s the experience of a lifetime, but can it last?
It’s a sweet little flick, but it’s an old concept, a used story and a boring storyline. Good acting though, and some good entertainment too.
Even my local acting class had the same story, a guy gets some wishes, uses them, regrets and uses one wish to fix everything up. And believe me, it was funnier then Mirakel.
