Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. The late Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high above Berlin who can hear the thoughts—fears, hopes, dreams—of all the people living below. But when he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality and come back to earth just to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot in black and white and color by the legendary Henri Alekan, is movie poetry.

Reviews

Wenders’ Masterpeice! A Visual Tour-De-Force!
– J. Hoberman
Part romance, part comedy, part meditation on matters political and philosophical, Wenders' remarkable movie posits a world haunted by invisible angels listening in to our thoughts... A film about the Fall and the Wall, it's full of astonishingly hypnotic images…
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
