Angel of Death, a crime thriller released in 2002 by German director Pepe Danquart, follows detective Maria Delgado (Mira Sorvino, "Mighty Aphrodite") as she is drawn into a troubling mix of murder, misogyny and mistrust. With penitent pilgrims parading down the Old Town streets for the Easter celebration, the pomp and pageantry of the Holy Days turns into a massacre. Alida Valli (DoÃ±a Catalina) stumbles across evidence of multiple murders committed amid the celebration and it's up to newcomer detective Maria Delagoda to piece together the clues. With the death toll mounting and the clues pointing toward a secret brotherhood, Delagado must pierce the veil of secrecy without becoming a victim herself. To make matters worse, newcomer Delgado must battle for the respect of her colleagues, a challenge made even more difficult by their prejudice against the female detective. Initially released in Italy, this film feautures Alida Valli in her final performance.
