Wings of Desire

It has been so long since I've watched
this film. I can't wait to watch it on Blu-ray.
Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings
high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts—
fears, hopes, and 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 to come back to earth 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.
And it forever made the name Wim Wenders
synonymous with film art.
