Angel on the Right (Tajik: Фариштаи китфи рост, Farishtai kitfi rost; Persian: فرشته کتف راست) is a 2002 Tajik comedy-drama film directed by Jamshed Usmonov. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.
This dark comedy, the third feature film for Jamshed Usmonov, is set, and filmed on location, in the Tajik town of Asht. After serving a long prison sentence, a remorseless man returns to his home village. While trying to help his mother die with dignity, the man endures multiple run-ins with the unyielding villagers who expect to collect on his myriad overdue debts. The cast of this film is the real-life population of the town of Asht itself. Usmonov cast his own mother and brother for the lead roles in the film.
