Movie Info

As directed by Christian Vuissa, the religious drama Errand of Angels dramatizes the work of two women of the Latter Day Saints, Sister Taylor (Erin Chambers and Sister Young (Rachel Emmers), attempting to spread the Mormon belief system among residents of the country of Austria. At the outset of the tale, Taylor struggles relentlessly with the chasm between her own LDS principles, and a harsh reality - the reality that makes it such a challenge for her to care about Sister Keller (Bettina Schwarz), a slightly irritating fellow missionary with a Teutonic authoritarian bent and a no-nonsense attitude. In time, however, Taylor receives the opportunity to spend a period with another woman in a neighboring city (Emmers), whom she is assigned to tutor and instantly befriends; as a result of this companionship, she begins to imbibe principles of altruistic devotion that will help her reach out to the difficult Keller.

Critic Reviews for The Errand of Angels

All Critics (3)

What this video scrapbook lacks in storytelling it makes up for in earnestness and a willingness to show the trials as well as the quiet triumphs of missionary life.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Vuissa's attempts to take Johnson's mission reminiscences and shape them into a full-fledged narrative never take hold.

September 5, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4
Salt Lake Tribune

This locally produced, LDS-themed drama is one of the more earnest and well-intentioned movies in recent memory.
