In the early 18th century an African slave boy is chosen by a European Comtesse to be baptized and educated. Reaching adulthood, Angelo achieves prominence and soon becomes the Viennese court mascot, until he decides to secretly marry a white woman. “The life story of African slave integrated into 18th-century Viennese aristocracy, Markus Schleinzer’s second feature is formally stunning and politically seething.” (Guy Lodge, Variety)
