"Wings of Desire"
Directed by Wim Wenders
first time I saw the film I thought it was a knockout; on second viewing it already seemed
a classic," wrote J. Hoberman of Wim Wenders' re-examination of the divided city of
Berlin. Damiel, played by Bruno Ganz, is the angel who has grown tired and frustrated at
his inability to affect people's lives. When he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze
artist, he decides to leave the heavens and enter the mortal world. With incredible
cinematography by Henri Alekan, Wings of Desire is one of the rare movies of the
past decade that actually stretch, break and re-form the boundaries of the medium"

English subtitles. 108 minutes.
