KITCHEN ANGELS is a witty choreographic story following two
women's evolution from the drudgery of household chores to a
fantastic transformation through the glamorization of mundane
domestic locations. The women's imaginations set them free
through a series of frescoes inspired by the grand entrances
of 1940s style song and dance films of Fred Astaire, Eleanor
Powell, Esther Williams, Moira Shearer and Betty Davis.
The film's soundtrack is paramount in supplementing
the narrative, which is expressed through movement as it
parallels the women's journey. The soundtrack is also
a journey spanning from original electronic music to
tango-inspired contemporary jazz piano and
classic turn of the century bandoneón.
