Description

The sky over Wenders's war-scarred Berlin is full of gentle angels wearing trench coats who listen to the tortured thoughts of mortals and try to comfort them. One wishes to become mortal after falling in love with a beautiful trapeze artist. Peter Falk, as himself, assists in the transformation by explaining the simple joys of a human experience, such as the sublime combination of coffee and cigarettes. The result is a film that is simultaneously sentimental and cerebral.Cannes Best Director 1987 Wim Wenders Director,screenwriter,producer, WINGS OF DESIRE

  • This is surely the most beautiful, magic

    By Mamajas  May 12, 2003

    ### I could sense the angels, around the people, visible for just a few and unnoticed by the rest. I loved the use of different languages, it takes away the gap between american/german/dutch (myself). Magic and so believable, wise and yet light and so mu...ch humanity with a heavenly breeze from the angels. Read more Less

  • The spiritual reality of life on earth

    By Yahoo! Shopping User  Sep 19, 1999

    ### Wings of Desire portrays the spiritual reality of life on earth with a compassion, truthfulness and intensity seen in very few films. It's a poignant story of an angel who gives up immortality and takes on the pains and risks of physical life in the...world, on the chance of coming together with a mortal woman whose spirit he loves. The lead actors all portray their roles beautifully, including Peter Falk as a former angel who took on physical forms years before. We are all souls moving through this world for the love of God - I have seen no other film that makes this reality so REAL, with no false sentimentality, and with true artistry. Read more Less

    And with commentary by Wenders and Falk?! Worth its weight in gold.
