House of Angels (Swedish: Änglagård) is a Swedish drama film which was released to cinemas in Sweden on 21 February 1992, about a little village in Västergötland, Sweden, where an aging recluse lives in a mansion on a large wooded property. One day he is accidentally killed and an unknown relative by the name of Fanny Zander inherits the mansion and land. When she and her friend Zac arrive, they turn life in the staid village upside down.
The film was screened out of competition at the 1992 Cannes Film Festival. At the 28th Guldbagge Awards the film won the awards for Best Film and Best Director. It was also nominated for Best Actress (Helena Bergström), Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography (Jens Fischer). The film was selected as the Swedish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 65th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
