“A sublimely beautiful, deeply romantic film for our times.” – David Stratton, Variety
Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts - fear, 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 down to earth to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot by the legendary Henri Alekan, is movie poetry. And it forever made the name Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.
